OK, when you think it is ready, I'll be happy to add it to

(I have just a few doubts about using GtkIMContextSimple for this:

 - It seems a little wasteful to use a big table for something 
   that is very consistent.
 - At some point, we may want to move to a more sophisticated
   table (or file) driven system for this simple type of input method...
   perhaps something like Mark Leisher's mim.

But, it works, and gives us all the other features of
gtkimcontextsimple.c, so I think it's fine for now.)
