| So, for making SCIM the system wide default, the following should be
| done on the Live CD and in the default installation:
| 1. install and configure scim and its modules
| 2. install im-switch
| 3. run as root:
| 	im-switch -s scim
| After a relogin, the user can toggle SCIM on/off by pressing CRTL+SPACE.

Grabbing ctrl-space as a default shortcut is quite unfortunate as this
will make emacs more or less useless in the default configuration.
C-SPC is used for marking the start or end of a region you want to
operate on.


| The following packages may NOT be installed:
|  * scim-uim: BROKEN, will trash the SCIM setup tool. Don't install it.
|  * scim-chinese: old version of scim-pinyin, not compatible with the
| current scim package; breaks dependency handling.

If those are actually properly broken and useless, then I think they
should be removed from the archive.
