I might be totally wrong on this, but as far as I know GTK+ applications
use the GTK+ input methods framework. The details of SCIM should be
hidden behind that abstraction. We should definitely continue to do
this, on the canvas, as in our text entries. One one of the main goals
of this project is to allow text input on the canvas without
compromising the ability to use the GTK+ input methods.
