Yep, looks like it's still using libgnomeuimm.

My sentiments exactly. Better not to keep known broken packages around;
it's only going to cause grief for users if they find out they can't
even install the package.

Once it's fixed upstream to not rely on libgnomeuimm, it can easily be
added back to Fedora.

Alex, could you please follow the End of Life procedure to get it
removed from F16+?
