That sound great.

BTW, there are also some considerations:
* SCIM used to cause a quite frequent wakeups on CPU. (see
linuxpowertop.org) I'm not sure if this is already fixed in the
* Several package like SCIM contains many non-necessary (to XO)
dependencies and it's kind of waste on the limited disk space. I
remember that SCIM RPM uses perl to do the configuration which is
actually not working for XO. A repack for XO would be needed.
* High quality CJK fonts with good coverage in unicode is rare. IPA
fonts are very beautiful, but the license issue needs to be taken good
care of. The unicode coverage is not enough for CKV. UnifontCJK-ng and
WQY-Zhenghei are still under heavy development. These fonts may need
RPM packages or re-pack for XO.
