I asked to put ktrans to 9front's contrib several years ago, and I agreed
it with no maintainance by myself.
The ktrans was written more than 20 years ago, then, I don't remember it...

When I was asked to collaborate with GSOC last year, I wrote to the author 
the principle under ktrans, then, I'll put it here again (the last time I'll write about this).

1) the most essential thing about ktrans is not in ktrans, but in pipefile.
2) pipefile was invented by Rob Pike which made us enbale to write Japanese
seamlessly, which means we can trewat Japanese, Greek and Russian as 
4) for ktrans proper, I chose the ktrans-jisho for individual user not system wide, because
each person has each habits to write Japanese, then it is better to have 
individual dictionary (Japanese has many different Kanji with the same sound, homophone)
This is intentional, don't make it change.
5) I also intentionary exclude proper and technical nouns, because those depend
on inviduals.
6) instead, I put tyhe mechanism to edit the ktrans-jisho on the fly.
7) 9front version includes pipekbd.c written by cinap, which is the same thing
of pipefile because 9front has kbdfs.


PS. if chinese has not so homophone, it may be easier to include it in ktrans...
