I'm confused by this technology discussion. I thought the Windows
'Text Services Framework' was already available as a ready way to
implements one's own IME. For example, it's used by an open source
Keyman for Linux (KMFL) implementation for the Windows by the name of
Ekaya, and at the very least it has been used to implement a brute force
method of entering BMP characters by hex. (At least, it sounded like
brute force to me.)
