Hmm. That would be quite unfortunate for users that *do* need it. We
discussed this on #ubuntu-desktop a few weeks ago, and back then I
suggested using language-selector to install this for users who have
fcitx installed. data/pkg-depends contains:

so there is the basics of what we need. We'd need some development to
trigger check-language-support as appropriate to install this.

Not fixing this part right now still lets us get Qt4 out of the default
installation IIRC - but it would still be on the desktop ISO for the
'live' task support that we worked on last(?) cycle.

Please do this one too.
