This is a standard feature of Canna.

Hmm, I always used a patched Mule; I just looked at the man page for
kinput2 and they say it supports XIM to talk to the client and can use 
Canna as a backend.  This is probably exactly what I've been looking

    C> Does Xwnmo have the Kanji selection window like kinput2?

I haven't got it to work yet; I suspect that it is just
"uum-in-a-different-window"; it even uses the uumkey file and so on.

An hour later:
Well, I've tried kinput2, and it just doesn't work with -xim.  If you
turn off kinput protocols and turn on XIM, even kterm can't talk to

		 kinput2 +kinput -xim & kterm -xim &

produces a hung kterm, and apparently eventually a coredump from
kinput2 (I'm not sure that's what caused it, but I got one).
