What is the plan, going forward, wrt to im-chooser ? I'd hate to have
2 input method related menuitems in the default install. My preference
would be to not install the im-chooser by default, since it is only
needed to switch back to 'legacy' frameworks.

It would be great if we could use the generic "Input Method" menuitem
for the ibus preferences, and maybe rename im-chooser to "Input Method
Framework" or something like that.

Alternatively, if we can't get rid of im-chooser by default, maybe
ibus-setup should not have its own menu item (I notice that scim-setup
doesn't have one either), since it is available via im-chooser.

Another case of 'menu pollution' that I only spotted after doing the
review is that IBus puts another menu item at Applications ->
Accessories -> IBus. That is not good, imo. First of all, the menu label
does not explain at all what it does, and second, it just duplicates the
functionality for starting an im framework that is already present with
im-chooser. Such duplication is just confusing, please drop it.
