it should work (any confirmation), but we don't handle multi-key input.

After a second of thought, maybe here's an idea:  I've wanted to do the
text-edit mode separately anyway, to avoid confusing with keyboard
shortcuts.  Can we have input be done through a GtkWidget temporarily
embedded in the canvas?  Can we make it display the same way it'll come out
(but with some visual indication of the edit mode, like white background
and a board)?  Just a thought.  The font issue may be tricky.
