Some progress has been made on this. I have been working on tidying up the
upstream by creating a separate ibus-table project
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ibus-table-sawn/ .

I do have one outstanding question to finish preparing the upstream.
Regarding ibus-table-createdb , using the -o option (which is advised when
preparing for distribution) disables the -p option of switch to pinyin
mode.  Is it essential is to use ibus-table-createdb -o  when preparing for
distribution? Is this a bug or a feature that -p option is not possible
