Ugh, I agree that it's fairly unfriendly.

Rather than a hardcoded table, however, you can build one dynamically.
You could build your own for 0x20 - 0x60 and then use XStringToKeysym
elsewhere.  That leaves a few small ranges to take care of in order to
fill things out, for instance 0x7a-0x7e.  I am not sure if the accented
characters in 0xa0 to 0xff will work if passed an '8 bit extended ascii'
string or not.  I guess we need to do an experiment to check the 
other extended Latin character sets (above 0xff) also.

It does look as though I need to do something about this in at-spi
sooner rather than later.  I'll let you know if I have time to code some
of it.
