etoys.sh and M17n patch go together so your worry is misplaced. Even if it 
were to be true, it would affect only non-en latin-1 locales on Linux platform 
only. Multilingual text input depends on compositioninput being present for en 
locales too. etoys.sh can be patched to skip composition input for these 
locales for now (de, el, es, fr, it, nl, ps, pt, ro, ru, si, sk, sv, tr).

So here is my plan for handling input code:
1. On Linux, Etoys VM will use composed input for all locales except non-en 
Latin-1 and UTF32 non-en Latin-1
2. On Mac, it will use MacRoman for all locales.
3. On Win32, it will use UTF32 for all locales.
4.‌ ‌composed input for the rest.
