As a side note, I've found the Unicode support incrementally improved
in Emacs 22.2 (in particular, it gets less confused about the display
width of characters encoded with multiple bytes).

I use Emacs (and many other programs) in a text-mode terminal
emulator. This makes it much easier to use the same instances of
programs from many different locations over secure connections.

Hence, "use SCIM for input" is something I only need to teach the
terminal emulator to do, and then I can use SCIM for input into any
Unicode-aware text-mode application without it needing to be also
aware of SCIM.

That may be a way for you to proceed.
