[Uim] uim-py: Adding idioms to PY.scm

I just started using uim-py to learn Chinese. It'is very nice that I can
type languages other than Japanese without changing my locale settings.
With all due respect though, I don't think it's very efficient that one
has to select characters one by one from a drop-down list. So I tried
adding idioms (zuotian, jintian, mingtian etc.) to PY.scm. Surprisingly,
it seems to work but I'd like ask couple of questions before adding more.
1. If I add basic 2,000 idioms to PY.scm, does it cause any problem?
2. I added idioms at the end of the list. Should I sort it alphabetically?
3. Is there a special tool to edit scheme files easily? I made a
spreadsheet so I don't need to type brackets and double quotations again
and again, but I can't use uim-py in the program (OOo Calc). I have to
type idioms in Gedit, copy&paste to the spreadsheet then to PY.scm...
4. Is there a plan to implement a dictionary (something like Anthy) for
uim-py in the near future? I wonder if I should wait for that rather than
edit PY.scm manually. It'll be good for practice but time-consuming...
Any advice would be appreciated.
