Would it be feasible to make the VM primitives generic? That is, do not call it “ImmX11Plugin” but e.g. “KeyboardPlugin” and the “focus” primitive would be called whenever a text field is focused, and the image would pass the cursor position as arguments (plus possibly the text field bounds).

Then we could implement the same primitives in e.g. the iOS or Android VMs to support the on-screen keyboard.
