[Feature request] Builtin emoji picker

Hi,

There's one thing I like a lot on my Windows machine, when I press Super + ; , this opens a small minimalist panel to input emojis. I couldn't find any equivalent on linux desktops. I know I can install some ibus extensions and stuff, but this never worked well for me. I would love if this could me an option that could be enabled/disabled out of the box.

That's such a bummer since right now, both Mac & Windows have quick & useful ways of typing emojis, but Linux is still lagging behind.

What do you guys think? Would this be a great addition to the Xfce desktop?

I don't use emojis much, but sure, it'd be nice.

For reference (a lot of info here, mostly Ubuntu/GNOME related): How to insert an emoji into a text in Ubuntu 18.04 and later?

I know this works out-of the box for GTK apps, because it's a GTK feature. But it wont for anything else, including the most important, web browsers. Good point though.
