I agree.  If we say E= inserts international currency
character, it may be ok, but, then, I think E= is not a good
key sequence.   How about $ plus one more key?  $$?  address@hidden

I agree on this point.

I also agree on removing this change, or on changing the key
sequencen to a more suitable one for international currency,
and tell users that it is for inserting international
currency, not for euro sign.

I think what he meant is to have a common simple key
sequence for international currency in all the other
postfix-type latin-X input methods that have the
international currency.  Correct?  Then, I agree on that.
