I just tried this software (from current cvs), and yes it looks like to
be quite good, Especially if you have a japanese keayboard. But well, it
looks like to be a nice replacement for kinput/XIM under GTK2, but only
for GTK2, if you're using any other kind of widget it'll just not work.

But i just had a look to IIIMF and the IIIMF im-sdk & iiimf-gtk Input
Method are available ! I will have to test this, expecting for it to be
of a real use; because for the moment switching from french to japanese
"on the fly" for example, is far to be easy. It needs to set LC_ALL,
needs to right/clic choose from Default to XIM or IM-JA at least under
GTK2. I'd like to have a shortcut that could change this, easily :)
