 Gtk+ has a function, gtk_im_context_get_surrounding. So immodules can
get charactlers around the cursor. But, XIM immmodule doesn't use this
 After all, your XIM server cannot know the characters around the caret.

 I'm not detailed to XIM and IMdkit, so I don't know how you should do
concreately. But, XimProto.h in IMdkit have "#define XIM_STR_CONVERSION
71". I think this is related to the thing you want to do.
