Actually this will save some hunderds of KB's space according to the
.deb files' size in http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/i/ibus/

In the real situation, many users have been using ibus-dev and
shawn-p-huang's PPA for a quite long time (maybe from the very begining
of the ibus-dev PPA's creation) because they ship the latest version of
ibus and is maintained by the package maintainer of Debian (LI Daobing
for ppa:ibus-dev) and upstream author (Shawn P. Huang for
ppa:shawn-p-huang). Their versions are better than the old ones in our
archive for many reasons although it is not a good choice from the 
distribution maintenance point of view. So the compatibility of ibus 1.3 
on Lucid has no doubt.
