Bug#555938: libx11-data: I want to compose anarchism

Package: libx11-data
Version: 2:1.2.2-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

I can easily compose the hammer and sickle (the symbol representative
of communism) by pressing the key sequence: 

  <Compose> <C> <C> <C> <P> -> ☭

But i can't easily make the circled A (the symbol representative of

I'd like to be able to use <Compose> <O> <A> (this is a
currently unused key sequence) to generate the symbol:  Ⓐ

The attached patch to /usr/share/X11/locale/en_US.UTF-8/Compose works
for me, though perhaps it should be placed in the Compose files for
other locales as well -- anarchism isn't just for the USA!



PS i only need to do <Shift> <4> to generate the symbol representative
of capitalism.  This preferential treatment (fewer keystrokes!) for
one ideology over another seems problematic, but that's probably a
separate bug.
