I'm now thinking about producing log only for a specific
character so that people can more easily find why that
character is shown by a specific font (or not shown). For
that, perhaps I must change the current font-log to
font-log-list, and make font-log to control what kind of log
to produce as below:
t: all log
nil: suppresss logging
char: log for that character
list: for instance, `(open close)' logs only opening and closing
Another improvement is for font-show-log (in mule-diag.el).
Currently a list of each entry is truncated to at most 20
items. It will be good to use text property to record the
truncated items on "..." and make it clickable to see all
Unfortunately I don't have a time to work on them at the
