Generally, the idea is to enable layout (Xkb group) per window and to 
reset layout to English if active window is Emacs. I have not tried 
recipes with managing Xkb group from emacs itself, e.g.

Another approach it to set global hotkey and if Emacs is focused, send 
some special key event that is bound to switching of input method. I 
have some links but the pages are not in English. Personally, I have not 
fully polished my setup, however it works with some limitations. I 
started from bash script calling xdotool, xvkbd, and xprop. Then I 
realized that C code is not dramatically longer but it allows to avoid 
struggling with limitations of such tools.

Tim Cross suggested me to raise the question concerning keymaps in 
emacs-devel once more, but I still do not feel that I am ready to 
discussion of technical aspects (e.g. hotkey handling in applications 
that fixed similar issues several years ago)
