1. Correct. And the name of SCIM immodule is "SCIM Input Method",
XIM is "X Input Method".
2. No. "/SupportedUnicodeLocales = en_US.UTF-8" is just to specify
which Unicode locale will be supported. These locales may not be
supported by any IMEngine. The locales which supported by IMEngines
can be used directly without being added into this list.
3. No reason. If you want to use lower case, just patch the source
code, changing it to "scim".
4. Right. The simplest and best way is just use "scim -d".
5. What is Kterm?
6. Multiple times for one user is not supported. I'll fix this issue
in the next stable release.
