There are special XKB functions that you use to decode a keyboard
event. We can probably just rip off the XKB code in emacs or another
XKB enabled program. I bet it's all pretty similar. I know there are
special programs you can run to do international input methods but I
don't know anything about them. It'd be nice to be able to have them
work with ratpoison. That may just be a matter of supporting XKB.
That'd be nice.
