Since 18eadfe…, loadkeys supports the composition of two Unicode keysyms
to another Unicode keysym.  Whereas the resulting char could already be
specified as U+…, diacr and base had to be given as 8-bit characters,
which is ugly with today’s Unicode support.  Since it isn’t realistic to
make keymaps capable of UTF-8, I was asked by a Debian developer to at
least make it possible to specify Unicode codepoints.  rvalue is
unsuitable at this point (because it does some trickery with KT_LATIN
vs. KT_LETTER which is not applicable here), I decided to add this to a
new expression just for compose.
