Yes, I can. And I will if I have to. Our current system uses a panel
with 96 characters, Latin-1. I'm trying to replace that with a series
of panels of 50-100 characters. One will support A-Z, edh, thorn, eng,
a couple other non-decomposable characters and the major combining
accents, and another will support extended Latin. I may triage African
and Turkish languages on the guess that we won't see any text in that
language--even if there is pre-1923 Latin text, there isn't much--and
that it's easily fixable if we do.
