BTW, another missing feature is an input method that would turn
a key sequence like ‘: - )’ into ‘😀’.  Many apps provide such
feature that surprisingly works like input methods in Emacs,
e.g. an incomplete sequence is left untranslated, etc.

More complex sequences work this way: type the first few chars,
e.g. ‘: t h’, then a completion list pops up with the first
completion selected ‘:thumbsup:’.  Then typing RET inserts ‘👍’.
