] Well, yeah. But there are other things the IM can do. e.g. bleep. Or send
] U+FFFD. Or anything.
Well, I'm not trying to convince but just trying to point the fact.
What's if I use "vi" or other editors to read Thai text file which has both
valid and invalid sequences. This means that I don't use IM so IM module
shouldn't be able to detect this.

Then, if we are going to display those invalid sequence with U+FFFD
(this is fine by me too) does it mean that wcwidth() is enough to check
if which vowel/tonemark is the valid sequence without checking the type of
previous character.

Another reason, this checking for invalid sequence for the display,
shouldn't it be in the engine, rather than in terminal ?
That's why I think that we should use Pango..... ?

Not quite sure about this.
What would be the suggestion, then ?
