Scim 1.4.6-1 has been uploaded to unstable and the transition begins.  Next I
am going to test the SCIM module packages and file bugs if necessary.

To summarize the changes needed:
    1.  Build-depend on libscim-dev (>= 1.4.6-1);
    2a. If already using a patch to change @SCIM_MODULEDIR@/* to
        @SCIM_MODULEDIR@/1.4.0/* in Makefile.{am,in}, drop such patch.
    2b. If not using such a patch, make necessary changes to deal with
        the move of installed module files from /usr/lib/scim-1.0/*/ to
    3.  (Optional) Change all references to /usr/lib/scim-1.0/1.4.0/ to
        /usr/lib/scim-1.0/*/ so that binNMU is possible for the next SCIM
        module ABI change.

The bug #422739 [1] has an example patch, against package scim-pinyin.
