[maemo-community] Requesting an election for Unicode characters

I have got an interesting request from "the hardware guys". And I
thought of an interesting way to satisfy it.

The question is about hardware keyboards in mobile devices for different
languages. What characters to put, what characters to sacrifice? You
know it's a hot topic and maybe yourself have thought sometimes: why do
they put X which I don't used, while Y is missing?

So the team is doing their usual research, but they are also interested
in getting some direct feedback from maemo.org users. Sure, we can open
a Talk thread and see what happens but I was thinking of... using our
preferential voting tool + an invitation to all the maemo.org users to
vote.  :)

Question: ç

Sort the following characters by preference: first the one you need more
and last the one you need less.

$ % & ( ) < = > \  _ | ~ £ €
ordered by the unicode values for neutrality ;)

Could we do this closing the election by the 15th, so we can see the
result on Dec 16?
