To add another use-case of wl_text_input protocol, I started a small
hack that enables XIM-based applications to use Wayland input methods:
It runs as a standalone XIM server and translates between those
protocols. A screenshot using weston-keyboard on xterm (on XWayland):
Unfortunately, it seems xterm does not support client-side preedit.
Here is another shot taken with gedit and GTK+ "xim" immodule:
I'm wondering if it is possible to display preedit on a floating
wl_input_panel if an X client does not support preedit, though I have no
idea how to place it near the client window.
