Not really. From the user point of view, most XEmacs users use
platform input methods (eg, compose keys, AltGr, etc) for non-ASCII
characters. Asian users typically have many options (eg, for Japanese
I use either Canna or Anthy), and Japanese Quail doesn't work at all
because it uses features that were introduced into GNU Emacs
specifically to support advanced features in Japanese Quail.
I only ever use Quail for the occasional accented character in
European names, so I don't know much about it. Maybe Aidan knows a
lot more, though.
I use it extensively and it is extremely practical when I occassionally
want to type more or less exotic languages in an en-US environment.
I wish I could extend Xinput with quail.. has anyone done that btw?
