  *Now*, Etoys supports both keyboards more or less, it is ok for OLPC
(and for us) to switching to dead_keys for everywhere.

  There are some other obscure input methods that GTK tends to support
but Etoys still doesn't.  But as long as you switch to dead_key or
multi_key or Unicode combining characters, we can do it without a
(big) problem.
