I don't have much experience of XEmacs, but I suppose that user can
type Japanese in XEmacs (with only Mule) using skk related packages.

Sorry, I can not understand, but,,, may be "ro-ma ji input" is
phonetic method. There are also "kana input", and it is another
phenetic (in Japanese, but not in English) method. There are also
complete no phonetic input method (like T-code) for Japanese, I think.

May be email@example.com can explain more detail. He is the maintainer
of skk related packages. or firstname.lastname@example.org, he is XEmacs specialist
in Debian JP.
