Thanks for that Giuliano. I've done INet searches researching this.
There are a number (read: a lot) of disgruntled people regarding ibus.
But I could never find a straight answer from researching if it was
"safe" to completely remove it without messing up input system. I think
this fear is a holdover from some of my MS experiences.

Like this recent thread about Ibus and Lazarus. As soon as I read it I
recognized the problem. How many other people are looking at Linux and
finding edits that they can't type in and tearing their hair out?? Bad
mojo for Ubuntu, oder?
