I did a quick search & found an input method application already exists
called uim (http://code.google.com/p/uim/wiki/OfficialUserDocument) that
supports a bunch of languages. It appears to be customizable in
behavior & can be used with multiple window systems. It looks like it
could work with any soft keyboard layout or application a user decides
I suggest that anyone interested in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or other
special input methods look at installing uim and trying it out with a
soft keyboard of their choice. "gtKeypad" should be able to be modified
easily to provide the character overlays common on the keyboards of
these regions. By combining customizations of uim & the soft keyboard,
you should be able to get any behavior you want.

I'm pretty sure there are copyright issues with T9 that were discussed
when "Finger Keyboard" was proposed and just starting to be developed.
