Absolutely. I'm not arguing that there doesn't need to be a way of
composing characters...

...what I'm arguing is that it doesn't make sense for it to look and
(from a button point-of-view) feel similarly to the other buttons in
the palette; it doesn't make sense for it to be the third row (when
rows 1, 2 and 4 act the same) and that it's unobvious even for people
who are *used* to composing characters.
