Well, it seems that, at least for me, Japanese input in FreeBSD is no
longer trivial.  While I haven't had time to thoroughly experiment, what
was simple on FreeBSD-9x is not working on 10.  I installled my usual
ibus-mozc (and also tried with Anthy) and the system, in a few different
window managers, (dwm, openbox, and fluxbox) is ignoring the ctl+space that
I use to switch between Japanese and English.  If I start ibus, ALL input
is in Japanese.

I imagine I'll figure this out sooner or later, and when I do, I'll post
