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.
