    I tried that in TextEdit, which is pretty smart, and the second
    diacritic didn't centre over the pair, but rather over the 0251. But
    I guess that's the only choice, and it would be a question of making
    a precomposed glyph.

    OS X does it correctly. (Though I didn't see your gif.)
