scim is not complete in Wheezy and the quality still needs a lot of
improvements... So I suggest to pick from GCIN/HIME, IBus and Fcitx.

GCIN/HIME: developed by zh-hant developer, but the framework itself is
a bit lagged behind comparing with IBus and Fcitx.

IBus: de facto input method framework, with chewing and bopomofo,

Fcitx: it gets a complete redesign and is still fast moving, with
fcitx-chewing, fcitx-libpinyin (libpinyin has a very good Zhuyin
implementation), and all tables supported by SCIM. It could be not
very good at input details for zh-hant users but I think it worth a
