aaah. unfortunately not. currently. sounds like japanese/chinese/korean. i
suspect there will need to be a dictionary option here for all words if they
add a space or not. i think this is best in the dict, not the kbd, as it's very
much language specific, not kbd layout specific (kbd layouts could be shared
between multiple langs). adding to the kbd file is easy - dict... means a redo
of the dict format.
