Sorry for the late reply. Somehow, your last mail was not delivered to
my inbox. I just saw it on the debbugs web interface.

I ran `ldd lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/immodules/ | grep gtk' in uim's
store directory, and got => 
 (0x00007ff9de133000) => 

Similar output for `ldd lib/gtk-3.0/3.0.0/immodules/ | grep
gtk'. So, I guess gtk+ is needed for this input method to work in gtk+
applications. Must be likewise for qt.

 If it's the latter, we definitely need to keep both.

Debian's solution is to have a separate uim package for each frontend --
uim-gtk2, uim-gtk3, uim-qt, uim-el, uim-fep, etc. This seems a little
expensive. But, perhaps we can take the middle ground, and have two

* a gtk output that supports gtk2, gtk3 and others
* a qt output that supports qt and others
