The latest ibus-gnome3 + gnome-shell can show a special symbol char on ibus
status icon by ibus engine.
The symbol can be defined in engine's /usr/share/ibus/component/*.xml .
Now ibus-anthy-1.2.6-3 has a symbol char and the similar fix is needed for
major ibus engines.
% grep symbol /usr/share/ibus/component/anthy.xml
The following patch is the example:
(Note: probably you don't need hotkeys tag since your engine would need Control
+ Space only for the trigger)

Fujiwara i gone through feature you have added it nice.
I feel icons are more informative than single characters, so i would like to continue with the icons, might be we can make it little bit smaller and matching with the gnome-shell theme.

However I think the character icon is the policy of gnome-shell:
If you don't add '<symbol>' tag, the default is the two chars from the engine's language.
The problem is, if you use input method is 'tamil-99' and keymap is 'Tamil', both icon will be 'ta'.
If you think 'tamil-99' is keymap, probably the default language chars are ok.
But if it's input method in which you often need to disable the IM status, probably it's better to assign a multi-byte char.
For Fedora 16, gnome-shell-3.1.91-2.fc16, gjs-1.29.17-1.fc16 and ibus-gnome3-22.214.171.12410817-5.fc16 are required.
Also gnome-shell disables any extensions by default in Fedora 16 so you need to enable ibus-gnome3 by manual to set gsettings:
Regarding to the icon size, currently I'd think to fix to install ibus-gnome3 instead of using pygtk2 statusicon on gnome-shell.
