There's several popular chinese input methods that Emacs didn't provide,
such as Wubi, and the PY input method comes with Emacs is not so
efficient and only support chinese-gb2312, a subset of GBK/GB18030, that
means a lot of chinese characters can't input with PY.

And it's strange to let the user use XIM with other applications, but
use another input method with Emacs. Mordern input methods has some kind
of intelligence, self-learning for example, every user has his own
favorite input method and optimized vocabulary.

According to the report, it fails with:

1, emacs 22, or emacs-unicode-2 branch
2, gnome-settings-daemon 2.12 or later
3, *.UTF-8 locale
