I use UIM and anthy on Hoary right now, but I believe SCIM and UIM are
very similar in capability for Japanese (both use anthy, for example). I
thought SCIM used UIM in the background?

IIIMF is a pain to set up and use, comparatively speaking, and doesn't
seem very actively maintained.

I think either UIM or SCIM is fine for Japanese; it probably comes down
to what the other languages need, really.

Just having the packages installable with apt would probably go a long
way, especially if there was a meta-package available?
