Hmm.. Looks like I should add it. It makes sense whether it affects the
installer behavior or not, since l-s should pull ibus-m17n if you
install Sinhala after the OS installation.

In any case that table in g-s-d will add wijesekera to the list of
active input sources. So both may be needed for a convenient user
experience (including the live session).

Thanks Colin!
