In relation to bug 11930¹ XK_dead_psili and XK_dead_dasia probably
should be added to x11proto/keysymdef.h.
In the UCS, combining psili is unified with U+0313 COMBINING COMMA ABOVE
and combining dasia with U+0314 COMBINING REVERSED COMMA ABOVE.
Given that, I'd suggest adding:
#define XK_dead_abovecomma 0xfe64
#define XK_dead_psili 0xfe64
#define XK_dead_aboverevcomma 0xfe65
#define XK_dead_dasia 0xfe65
Are there any objections to doing that?
If those are added, the various references to <U0313> and <U0314> in the
Compose.pre files in libX11 could be changed to <dead_psili> and <dead_dasia>.
Adding those two dead keys will leave ten empty slots consecutive with
the current dead key symbols (0xfe66 to 0xfe6f).
