[code] More on the backtick in Spanish keyboards

I have continued to work on this in order to make typeover, keypairs, etc.
work consistently.

I have come up with a single function to treat all insertions and typeovers
and the kernel of this function is:

    if buffer.selection_start == buffer.selection_end then
      if textadept.editing.typeover_chars and
textadept.editing.typeover_chars[code] then
        if buffer.char_at[buffer.current_pos] == code then
          return true
      if textadept.editing.auto_pairs and
textadept.editing.auto_pairs[altcode] then

        return true

AFAIK, this is also done in modules/textadept/editing.lua in two hooks. Now
my questions:

1) Why not reorganise editing.lua to make this code be called in one hook
and not in two?
2) Why not make this code a public function that can be called from outside
for things like patching the behaviour of a strange keyboard (that is used
by 'a couple million' ;-) people on this planet) ?

Mitchell, let me know if this makes sense to you and I will try to provide
a sensible patch set

Best, /PA
