[qtopia] german dictionary for predictive keyboard

The predictive keyboard using the german dictionary does not accept
`ss' for sharp S
`ue' for u-umlaut
`ae' for a-umlaut
`oe' for o-umlaut

When writing the german word `weiß' with a sharp S at the end,
`weiss' will not be accepted. You will get `weise', etc... because
`weiss' is actually no german word at all.

But to reach for the sharp S, you have to move two keyboards further.
Same problem for words with umlauts.

So good would be if either the system would recognize `ss' as correct
wherever a sharp S is in a word (same for ue, ...). In an SMS most
people won't complain about lousy orthography. ;)

Or if the system would understand that `ss' can mean sharp S and writes
the word properly.
