The documentation for TEC mapping files mentions the Mapping Editor. But a)
I can't find it for Linux, and b) it "does not handle mapping descriptions
written as Unicode text; it is strictly an 8-bit editing environment."  Is
there any chance that these limitations, especially the latter, might be
addressed in future?  Especially for Asian languages that have widely-used
transliteration schemes and multiple alphabets (like Sanskrit), TECket
mapping has moved way beyond its original purpose of mapping legacy 8-bit
