Agreed, but if in the end there's no dead keys support, there still is a
problem somewhere, no matter which component's fault it is in the
chain...
Note that I only tried a few times acme on Plan 9, so I don't even know
if that "missing dead keys" claim is true, or if that is simply a matter
of configuration.
Or maybe Thomas was talking about acme from the plan9port?

Cheers,
Mathieu.
