For what it's worth, after some response on the tlug (Tokyo Linux User
Group List), I _did_ get it running with Debian, but with less
functionality than I've had with ibus.   On FreeBSD, I've been using ibus
for years, and judging from my recent tests, see no reason to
change--however, at least I now know that it can actually work. :)
