It can't run on xterm, but one of the things we'll have to do is to work on
gnome-terminal and similar terminal emulators in order to reproduce the Akka
behavior, which, technically speaking is pretty trivial (I had a look on
eterm some time ago) modulo free time.
But I don't understand why it wouldn't be interesting if it's only for text
if VIM arabization will not be a really impossible job, why not do it ..
Akka does fix this problem, but with limitations, and as VIM has good i18n
support, and UTF-8 support, why not do it ..
of course the work you are doing in Akka is very appreciated, but still I
think that the VIM is a different project .. as there is the graphical VIM
( with the -g option) so it could serve as a graphical text editor in
arabic as well ..
Just a thought
