* Additional Information:

ICU 4.0 changed character-break rules to comply with UAX #29
"http://unicode.org/reports/tr29/" and prevent inserting a character break
after a "prepend" character. Even though this rule is good for displaying Thai
characters, it is not good for inputting them because Thai people are familiar
with the behavior of ICU 3.8 for inputting Thai characters.
(ICU 4.0 permits inserting a character-break before a half-width katakana
voiced mark again.)

To prevent this problem, we should add a new break iterator for inputting
characters and use custom rules (based on the character-break rules of ICU 3.8)
to avoid using the character-break rules of ICU 4.0 for inputting characters.
