 Replying to [comment:14 Yorick]:
 > I understand what you are trying to say, but:
 > a) The question is not about turning prediction off, but _providing_ a
 way to turn it off and on. Because I don't think it will be possible to
 use those "hints on the input", because even under normal circumstances
 (like in an SMS) where English-speaking people would like the predictive
 input you will sometimes type names of people/places

 Now the question is if you don't only switch mode based on the input hint
 but on user choice. How would that happen? With the current plan you would
 go to exposure and switch the keyboard to a none predictive one. Would
 that help you? Effectively we would just have a non predictive version of
 the predictive keyboard and you could pick that. I would not know where to
 configure the predictive keyboard to dynamically enable/disable

 Depending on how often "sometimes" is the route through exposure might be
 okay, it might not. Comments?

 word to the dictionary, so at this stage the predictive keyboard is not
 really user-friendly.

 You can install qtopia-phone-x11-words and add your words to the
