UIM can use m17n-lib as a backend input method engine, and
it's quite easy to add a new m17n-lib input method.  You can
use m17n-lib input method also as an backend of SCIM (if you
install scim-m17n).

Once you confirm that some m17n-lib-based input method are
available via UIM or SCIM, please put the attached file
"sv-post.mim" under the directory where m17n-lib is
installed (usually /usr/lib/m17n or /usr/local/lib/m17n,
checkable by running the command "m17n-db" with no arg).
Then add the following line in the file "mdb.dir" in the
same directory.

(input-method sv post "sv-post.mim")

That's all.

I'll include this and many more Emacs input methods in the
next release of m17n-lib.

Could you tell me what is odd?
