right now. and predictive text entry using a mouse in qemu seems like it
would be less than satisfying.

that's why I said "non-T9" in my email - there are other predictive text
entry methods using a numeric keypad, T9 is only one of them.

I've reviewed most of these already and I do not dispute that they may be
objectively better, but if we want to draw in the "crossover text'r" (aka

thanks for the links.
