Sorry.  I thought that it went w/o saying that I was referring to quail.
And, as I found out trying to input 日本語 yesterday, even then only a
subset are doable.  Perhaps if the char is in a UCS/TUS script which is
supported by one or more 'simple' quail IMs it could optionally iterate
through those looking for matches?

As for why, Miles and Daniel hit the nail on the head; to know how to
input it in the future.
