Hi everyone,

I have a request for an onscreen japanese keyboard for a Qt application. 
Later it will also have Korean, Russian and a bunch of others.

There are several problems with this. For example, should it be a 
keyboard that shows japanese chars on the keys? If yes, I think there 
are more than one of those.

If not, then we'll show the normal ascii chars and do a conversion with 
the input. As I understand it, this is what the mobile world does? 
Setting the locale on a line edit to japanese and sending key events 
doesn't seem to give me any Japanese chars.

Did someone here already implement this? Any pointers? I have done a 
google search for this, but nothing useful came up. I hope you guys can
