    Hmmm ...

    Sounds to me like there should be some sort of umbrella FOSS-based IME
    project which would centralize the core set of common resources that
    all of these disparate IME projects ( , , , ,,
    etc... ) are using.

    As far as I can tell (admittedly, I haven't researched this very
    much...), there are a number of these FOSS project groups all out
    developing solutions for specific platforms (maemocjk for Nokia
    mentioned by Jeroen, scim for the Linux desktop, etc.). Increasing
    diversification in the mobile devices market is already leading to the
    creation of projects like Android. It seems to me one could also
    create a FOSS project around IMEs that Android and other devices,
    including desktop computers, could all use.

    I certainly know which CJK input methods I like best, but they are
    invariably not available on most computers and devices I have access
