Comment (by sysrqb):

 I'm thinking about where ยข (U+00A2, cent sign) should be mapped. It's on
 the French-Canadian, Dutch and Brazilian keyboards, but I don't think any
 of them are necessary the most likely to use it. I was attempting to cover
 a breadth with this patch, but maybe quantity isn't quality and we may be
 better off letting some characters fall-through to a sane default rather
 than choose between a few minor options. This is also difficult because
 I'm basing decisions on what I see and read on Wikipedia and some
 additional small amount of research; natives of the respective locales
 would likely provide better data points for making a decision.
