Ah, I actually had to make this decision when I created uim-romaja,
which is table-based. I wound up using capitalization instead of 
spaces, and it was very hard to have to reach for the shift key all 
the time. I think it's actually easier to type "gam sa hab ni da" 
than "GamSaHabNiDa". On the other hand, the Korean language makes 
use of spaces too, right? So the space bar would have  to have two 
functions instead of just one.

I don't have a Linux box set up right now, but I might be setting 
one up in the near future. At that time I would very much like to 
help out!
