 Summary: [2.0] XIM is not enabled
 I'm guessing this as a bug rather than requesting feature completeness
 since XIM support is explicitly denoted in 1.1.15 release notes.

 We did some XIM stuff for another bug we had, not getting proper 
 translation for some characters. I'm not sure we should try full 
 input method support for the 1.2 release, it requires quite a bit of 
 additional work and we're behind as is.
 I'm gonna mark this 2.0, if you disagree please change it back.

+Oh, didn't know that current code base was not for input method
+support itself.
+I don't think we should do it by 1.2 release. We already announced
+that input methods are unlikely to be supported in 1.2, and if we
+really need quite a bit of work, it is anyways impossible to support it.
+Without XIM almost all winforms applications are useless in CJK land,
+like a clarinet that does not produce C, D, E, F, G, A, and B sounds.
+But maybe we can use mozembed for TextBox purpose (of course rewriting
+application sources).
