There is a solution, but TeX is not it.
I am a linguist. At one time or another I have needed just about every
character in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), including all
Unless TeX can enter all the combining diacriticals on the above link
it will not do for me. In Scribus or LO Writer on Linux I can enter any
of them easily just by using the Unicode value for the combining
diacritical. Of course, I use the Junicode font for everything, since it
was created by Prof. Peter Baker for use in classics and linguistics and
has just about every character I might need, including ordinary
typesetting niceties like true small caps, old style numerals, swashes,
and lots more. But even if I convince TeX to use Junicode it still has
no way to enter all the diacriticals that I need.
