A new general input manager protocol, vaguely like XIM but more
general (originated in the Java world) and benefiting from the
experience with XIM.

You can do this in any reasonable Linux shell, although it takes some
effort in many cases.

That's not multilingual support then.

Mule eterm.el?  ;-)

Or do you mean the Linux console?  You could do it in the framebuffer,
but it will be a bit of work to get the fonts and so on.  You also
have to make some decisions about how to handle the aspect ratio
problem (normally Western alphabetic scripts have approximately a 2:1
aspect ratio, but Asian ideographic scripts are 1:1).  Stick with X11,
I think....

For anything that's supposed to communicate with kinput2, yes.  If
it's a TTY app in the kterm, then you just need to make sure kterm is
working on the right thing.
