SCIM does uses m17n-db to input asian languages (Thai, indic, etc) on
desktop - but how can it be scaled to a device like N800 would be an
interesting question.

The main problem is that desktops have an external keyboard attached -
for which (in most cases of m17n-db), there is a 1-1 mapping of keys
(simple keymaps).  But when it comes to Hildon, we have to see how the
keymaps can be displayed on the popup keyboard, how complex input
sequences can be inputed using the popup keyboard & etc.

If you are curious on how a keymap looks like, have a look at
/usr/share/m17n directory if you have m17n-db package installed.
Otherwise, please head to www.m17n.org website.

I'm still waiting to get my N800 & this will be my first porting project.
