I think I need to describe in a better way how I envision the future
I want to have the IM daemon merged into the wayland compositor. So KWin
would talk directly with the IM through library calls and the composed
text would be sent from KWin to the application through the Wayland
I want to eliminate the IPC between applications and IM daemon.
If we are going to touch this code we can strive for the best solution
and not keep stuck on the approach used on X11. And yes that might need
adjusting the IMEs. But they need to be adjusted anyway. We wouldn't
have this discussion if it would just work on Wayland.
