Sorry if you know this already -
Chinx would be pronounced 'Chinks', which used to be a (I think not very 
polite) term used in some English speaking countries to refer to Chinese 
people in the plural. I think this is what Peter means by sense of 
humour. If you want to 'reclaim' that term - which was originally not 
very polite - then I guess that's fine; but I think you should know this 
before deciding on the name.

I didn't get the 'chili' references either - perhaps references to spicy 
Sichuan cousine?

There is already a chinput, maybe you could be something like hanziX, 
sinokey, or cjkinput? (also I think chinix is fine...)
