Thanks!  I have a few comments:

1. Could you also add rules to input vowels with the combining acute
accent like you did for the combining grave accent, i.e. could you add
("a'" ["а́"]) and other vowels with the primary stress?

2. There are now two conflicting rules: ("E`" ["Ѐ"]) and ("E`" ?Э).

3. I just realized that we could leave the rule ("'" ?ь), because
it has no conflict with ("a'" ["а́"]).  The letter `ь' is never used
after a vowel.

4. Please swap the mappings between ("/``" ?”) and ("/''" ?“),
and also between ("/'" ?‘) and ("/`" ?’), because usually backquotes
are used for left quotation marks, and apostrophes are used for right
quotation marks.

5. Something is wrong with encoding of small roman numeral 1-10.
Maybe we should recode cyrillic.el from iso-2022-7bit to utf-8
to avoid these problems?

I tried the patch that Handa-san submitted in 2007, and it works well
(with only one change of removing unnecessary `nreverse').  So I think
we should now design a good UI to use multiple input method support.
