Peng Huang, excuse us. (Bcc-ed and we will not CC you) 

Ma, please stop being loud.  It does not help.  We need cool head and
careful technical review.

This is primarily distribution problem Debian.  If Ubuntu have patch
tell me.

If we come up with patch to make ibus work with KDE, then we ask nicely
to upstream about inclusion of patch.

I basically know that.  I just did not do careful review yet.  That is
why I left it vague.  

Certainly, adding gnome-icon as dependency is one quick solution.

I think there is better one.  Do you know KDE icon which serve this
purpose?  If so please make patch using KDE icon one as another back up
and then one more level of back up using /dev/null.

If we have this patch, upstream may consider this inclusion.  But RH
being Gnome focused, there is not much reason to have this complication.
Then we carry as debian patch.
