With GTK+-2.2.3 and newer, you can do 

 export GTK_IM_MODULE=cedilla

to make the "cedilla" module the default (Just the default module with
c_with_acute replaced with c_cedilla) 

Making the default input method an xsettings parameter (and thus
possible to hook up to GConf) isn't unreasonable. But I've been
reluctant to do a lot of work in connecting an user interface
to the GTK+ input module system because:

 A) A real solution needs to present keymaps and input methods
    together in coherent fashion. We need to do as well or better
    than competing operating systems.

 B) A real solution can't be based on GTK+ IM modules, because
    GTK+ IM modules are GTK+ specific. When I wrote the GTK+ 
    IM module system, I thought long term we would have 
    an XIM module, an IIIMF module, a module for windows,
    and a fallback module for the framebuffer, etc.

    The free desktop needs a good input method system. GTK+ 
    IM modules are not it.

 C) A real solution needs to properly handle remembering the
    input method and/or keyboard group per toplevel, xchat
    tab, etc.
