 I think your opinion is right. I'm noticed adding new method doesn't
seem good to solve this problem.

 I think spirit of original snooper patch is not enough. Because now we
are disscussing about IM key event handling, but Gtk+ has another key
event handling problem. Another problem is discussed in the last few
days on gtk-devel-list.

  I think gtk+ should have something new keystroke handling mechanism.
(So, our conclusion may be same.)
