Wubi86 input.

SCIM is an input method system for UNIX systems -- a pretty comprehensive
one (if a tad finicky on installation).  Wubi is a standard for entering
Chinese characters on a standard keyboard with extreme levels of speed.
Wubi has come out with two standards, though: Wubi86 (released in 1986) and
Wubi98 (released in, oddly enough, 1998) that differ in subtle ways.

My wife knows Wubi86 well and the 98 version is just different enough that
it frustrates her.  Windows has both versions available, so she never
bothered training up in 98, but since I'm trying to slowly wean her over to
Linux (as an "Auntie Bertha" test case of whether Linux is ready for
end-users yet) the absence of a Wubi86 input system is a negative mark.
