I basically agree with Steve. But maybe we could add an installation
checkbox option in the installer, something among the lines of: "Enable
IBus input methods on autostart for all users"? We could give some nice
explanation there on why this could be important for asian-language
users etc. Maybe even have the checkbox checked by default when the user
selects specific languages that might need it.
