Oh yes, it's very convenient for me, and also for others who know about
it and explicitly enabled it in their keyboard configuration (hidden in
a dozen other options behind 3 level dialog structure).

My point was that there should be a more easily discoverable and
user-friendly way, i.e. "pick from a visual list" versus "remember
sequences hidden behind an invisible magic key". The character map
applet provides exactly this, which is why I am arguing it is essential,
especially for many non-English speakers.

(FYI: Dutch requires some accented letters to be able to write
correctly, but those characters are not on our keyboards since all
computers have a generic American English keyboard.)
