There're some inconvenience about IM in GNOME 3
GNOME 3 had integrated ibus as it's default method
if you don't want to use ibus, you have to remove ibus
but this may impossible in a multi-user system
but if you don't remove ibus
gnome-settings-daemon will force reset your QT_IM_MODULE and
XMODIFIERS variables
that cause can't input in QT-base applications and some legacy apps

need your help and opinion

Yeah, that's the only choice, I'm afraid.

GNOME3 can't work cleanly with other input frameworks -- this is
already a fact that was decided by GNOME developers years back. So,
the cleanest option would be not to support GNOME as long as this
decision is kept, but I don't think it's any practical option :)
Hence a workaround like above shall be required more or less...

That being said, if this won't break anything else than GNOME setting,
I'm all for it. Go forth. It's much better than keeping broken.

BTW, one can modify /etc/X11/xim instead of each /etc/X11/xim.d/*.
From maintenance POV, this might be easier as you'd need to patch only
one package. But it's still a bit hackish, in anyway.
the workaround needs to detect IM framework and windowmanager
put it in each files seem more easy for me.
will submit to M17N for test
pushing to openSUSE_Update_13.1 2 days later
