For Mageia 1, we can keep both, and make sure they work fine.
drakxtools allows to chose between the two.

ibus should probably be preferred if we get it to work fine, we would
have trouble solving scim issues since it is not maintained upstream

Do you know which packages have to be imported to get these IM
