I wish I could see or understand some of this CharMap functionality,
without installing it and risking my Ubuntu/gedit consistent installation.
For example, how easy it for users to configure and exchange
among themselves, a "good set" of special symbols.

For example, for me as a Hebrew-gedit user 
(The only case where I use gedit...)
I can insert all the 27=22+5 Hebrew letters, via the standard
Xorg.conf/Xkb mapping of my toggled-keyboard.
But occasionally, I need a few diacritical marks (Nikud/vowels)
and searching for them in gucharmap - is not convenient.
I don't know, but I guess similar situation exists for
other languages.

That could be a nice option.

I was not clear. The idea of 'required' gedit version is certainly logical.
But for the same gedit version, a specific plugin my have several versions.
Say tomorrow (no time to be that fast...) I will release a new version
of SpecSym that supports embedding its interface in the "Side Pane".
I would like to associate a bumped-up version for such SpecSym release.
