Comment(by iknowjoseph):

 Replying to [comment:14 Yorick]:
 > 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

 This is exactly what I want. Apologies if it wasn't clear before, but I
 want the standard 2008.8 keyboard, in predictive mode, but with a button
 to toggle that mode on and off. On my SonyEricsson I can hold down the *
 key and it gives me the same keyboard, but with the predictive mode
 toggled off.

 To be honest, this would be the simplest the keyboard could be whilst
 still operating in a useful manner. A more advanced (although I can't
 imagine difficult) solution would be to automatically turn off the
 predictive keyboard when entering a web address, password, config setting,
