I imagine you need to change signalIMDeleteSurrounding where we have
nDeletePos = nPosition + offset and
nDeleteEnd = nDeletePos + nchars
and instead of adding "offset" and adding "nchars" you need to call
getText on xText to get the string, then use
OUString::iterateCodePoints to count forward from nPosition by "offset"
IM codepoints to get the utf-16 offset for LibreOffice, and similarly
iterateCodePoints by IM nchars to get the LibreOffice utf-16 nchars to

might suck rocks for performance.
