Isn't it too smart to make "vl" automatically "vlogo"?

But, I agree that it is more convenient to make, for instance, "vl
TAB" complete "vl" to "vlogo" and also show the above list.

The key TAB while translating is handled by the function
quail-completion of quail.el.  Are there anyone who want implement
such a feature?  I'll help people understanding the code, but I'm
currently too busy to do that by myself.

I agree.  But, it is better not to modify leim/CXTERM-DIC/PY-b5.tit
itself.  Until we find a good way to add Emacs original translation
rule as above, please use this kind of form in your .emacs.

(eval-after-load "quail/PY-b5"
  '(quail-defrule "ling2" ?○))
