never mind ...  wrong copy, ok now :-)
Although I still believe no dictionaries should be updated when in
non-predictive mode. I would also like not to have to click on a word
before being able to enter a space and continue to the next word, so
default accept would be nice as well in unpredictive mode ...
Probably KeyboardWidget::acceptWord() and OptionsWindow::acceptWord()
can benefit from you changes :-)
