Yep, but the problem I'm still not willing to see it get merged is
that current code will make IBus broken. The correct approach to
resolve XKB and Input method integration is letting input method
framework to handle XKB representing GNOME, IMHO.

The LWN article is a great summary, but some of the wording indicates
the editor still lacks a bit of researching. For example, I'm one of
the most active input method maintainer in Debian and Ubuntu, and I do
care much about both IBus and Fcitx. In my personal opinion, I'll use
Fcitx for my daily work and advocate its bright future, but I do know
that IBus currently is more useful for some people, please don't think
I myself is simply a Fcitx fanboy.
