It is possible and done already. About most work was needed to integrate
existing hildon_im  . I can put my port to garage.maemo.org but i just need
to hear from someone from osso permission to put it with needed
hildon_im .h files

And then you need input method support, support for  some default  maemo
Thing that i have at the moment missing is support for menus in standard
maemo menubar. It just looks little bit stupid having menus top of window.
