You can switch input methods from the right click menu in a GtkEntry
or GtkTextView widget.

The implementation of these input methods looks fine, but I'm a little
uncertain about them in one regard - they really are just keymaps, not
input methods, and it should be possible to do these with a Xkb
keyboard map.

(Assuming that the Xkb tools are able to handle the semi-standard
extension where a key symbol for Unicode characters without a standard
key symbol is assigned character | 0x01000000)

It doesn't strike me as quite right to do a Indic keyboard map by
assuming a US keyboard map, then having the input method remap the
results of that to the Indic keyboard.

I still don't have a good feel for the proper interaction between
keyboard maps and input methods.
