No, I don't think your question stupid or boring. 

I have very little experience with inputting unicode chars, but did some
digging, hopefully some of these links can be of some assistance to you:
        Means of Composing Accented Characters in X Window System
        - Tips for extending the compose list.
        Latin Plus: An Input Method Module for GTK+
        - Seems to be another way of using the compose key.
        How to Type Letters with Accents in GNOME
        - Describes a multikey, no idea how this differs from compose.
