The im-switch file is still in debian/im-switch, and debian/rules still
installs it.

As the maintainer of the scim package, I completely agree.

Before there is a better way for the individual IM module packages to
configure the im-switch settings, you can always depend on
scim-gtk2-immodule and add a debconf note to ask users to set im-switch
to scim-immodule (or even offer to set it in the debconf question).
