I already made a new convention on it.
I think pressing '~' before vowel to input only vowel is too inconvenient.
How about to type in upper letters?
You can input 'ㅏ' by typing 'A'
This is alreay applied to my HangulRomaja.txt.

I tested this table. But I cannot input hangul correctly.
When I type 'annyeongha', it shows 'ㅏn영ㅎh아'.
I think there is a problem in m17n table routine.
When I type 'g', it immediately commit 'ㄱg'. This is not right.
It should show preedit string 'ㄱ'.

This problem also happened on m17n-ko-hangul2.
I don't know why.
