x-symbol is much more than character display.  It contains elaborate
input methods/menus, conversion on read/write also for latin1 characters
and a few other things.  The main permanent productivity advantage
really is the input method thingy.  There have been feature requests by
users to its author about getting those input methods without the actual
conversion and display.
