There isn't anything that upstream "recommended", everything is in
ibus's configuration script. Wherever the $libexecdir is set to,
ibus-setup is going to find plugins from that path. It's advisable
that upstream provide a solution for the case of real multi-arch
support, not only for what Fedora has (multilib).
