I think you are right.
Question is how to coordinate with other anthy users and the latest
If you have time to go over all the dependency package coordination,
please go ahead start uploading patched packages. I am a bit short on
time. I have not updated ibus to Debian. Also, I think anthy should
have bumped library version to prevent this breakage in unstable.
But I haven't checked details. You are welcomed to lead this task and
upload as long as you will take responsibility.
