Has anyone taken a stab at or are there any plans to implement input
methods under OS X -- such as for Chinese characters and such? It
looks like alternate keyboard layouts and dead keys are supported, but
not the "input methods" which involve popping up dialogs showing
selections of inputs for given keystrokes. The dialogs are
created/managed by the system, but Carbon calls need to be made to use

This is great news. If it would help, I could send you some code
excerpts from the Carbon port of GNU Emacs which handle input methods.
I'm a Cocoa programmer, not a Carbon programmer, so my initial
looking over of whether key event handling otherwise was being done in
a parallel manner did not come to any conclusions.

Yes, I could test in a couple of the Chinese input methods.
