Hmm, and once COMBINING MACRON WITH SOME WHAZZIT STUCK ON IT
is encoded, it is going to be used as in an argument against
encoding COMBINING UP TACK ABOVE, saying that it is already
encoded as COMBINING MACRON WITH SOME WHAZZIT STUCK ON IT,
just so strangely named to confuse y'all. Just because the
then-printed glyph wasn't perfectly shaped, does not mean
that it wouldn't have been an up tack if it had been.
Instead, I think it quite appropriate to "unify" them.
Compare trema and umlaut which are, quite appropriately,
unified into diaeresis (which b.t.w. should **NEVER** be
displayed as a combining small e above, there's a separate
character for that).
