After I failed to make ibus transition like your case, I made a memo as:

This sites are useful:

I will check the whole situation a bit carefully to make recommendation
later, if I can.

If upstream didn't bump so name for this UTF-8 change, that complicates
things.  Did he?

I see.  I may need to update im-config once you do this.

I think "Use the versioned -dev package names: libfoo7-dev and
libfoo8-dev" is the way to go for this case.  But I need to check more.

Use the versioned -dev package names: libfoo7-dev and libfoo8-dev

This is the special case.
Two versions of the library source packages are allowed simultaneously in the archive.

 * Make all dependent packages depend on libfoo-dev.
 * Make both libfoo7-dev and libfoo8-dev provide libfoo-dev.
 * The source package needs to be renamed as libfoo7-7.0.tar.gz and libfoo8-8.0.tar.gz respectively from libfoo-?.0.tar.gz.
 * The package specific install file path including libfoo7 and libfoo8 respectively for header files etc. needs to be chosen to make them co-installable.
