If there has options, our community will choose first one as you said.
Don't worry about sideeffect with the patch,It's just change minor GHOST
code ,and GHOST are not all of blender fuctions.
And there haven't any evidence to show that with the patch- crashes and
bugs are more and more. Because users still use the first version of IME
blender which T.K. compiled at work,and It's stable enough.
But if Blender coder team have some big plan for GHOST or more i18n stuff
need be done before this path, I think we can wait for that reason.
And there still some barrier for users who are not learnt English but still
love Blender and CG:like UI word's polyseme, or font select problems. some
is usablity and some is function missing.If these problem are not solved,It
can't be the first choice software in China. Though some member company of
Blender asian community use Blender to produce some commercial works :
.But the pipeline is mixed with AE or something else,pure Blender pipeline
are not comes, because in China Blender vs. piracy CG software. Teams
choose software for their works are not cost but popular,if IME support in
Blender we can make Blender and opensource software through pure
Localization software education and so on.
we have our own bug report mechanism, users find bug and report it in
http://bbs.blendercn.org/forum.php?mod=forumdisplay&fid=65 then leon
distiguish real bug and report in Blender's bugtracker. so don't worry the
Blender with IME will cause bug report flows. we can handle it.
So,above is some thought of spread and support Blender spread in Asian
No matter what the code team decide to the patch,we are glad and
appreciate that code team and Blender Foundation care about users from
Thanks a lot!
P.S. we have an announcement system that can push information to
thousands people immediately, we can test not just IME but other functions
every time with one hundred people same time if needed.

> * Postpone entire merge for 2.74 (we/I could still provide regulary
