Actually SunPinyin2's SCIM frontend is not ready for use in daily
life. But the SCIM frontend for SunPinyin 1.0 is pretty stable.

So I believe it might be a very good idea to also package the SCIM module, also because it could well be ported to other platforms (I'm namely thinking about Maemo (I'm using my Nokia N900 to write this email...)). Also, I think its a shame to package only a part of a program only because you use a part of it. Do you think you could as well port the SCIM module? I will test it for you (in both Lenny and lucid lynx), and help.
Thomas, I agree with you. After SCIM frontend is ready we can work
with Liang to package it. =)
I will squeeze more time to finish the SCIM frontend to make it happen.
