Hi Jeremy,

Thanks for patches.  

I agree these as very good clean ups.  Thanks.


But this core change proposal, I disagree (at least now as first glance).

First of all, it looks like ***working*** here in GNOME 3.8 :-)

    I see "Show all input methods" at the bottom of list.

I agree.  Hiding parts, I had some resentment.  Your idea is good.

That was my initial reaction to this in FC19.  But FC19 had nice hiding
and it is working here.

That is why I doubt your assessment of "patching a gconf schema".

Yes, the patch file contains a large patch to gconf schema XML in data.
But the patch file also contain 2 patches to python code in setup.

So this patch may have some legacy unused portion for our build for XML
or this XML may be used to update gsettings-desktop-schemas, but at
least small code patch in it is the one it counts and it seems working
here.  Unless you tell me more or my test without this patch gives me
"Show all input methods" , I will keep this patch since it is in synch
with FC19.

I will check this later.
