It's a bit of a catch-22 here. Without XIM it's useless for Japanese
people and with XIM we've got all these annoyances. Until it's sorted out
(ideally the patches are merged upstream so the main KDE developers
also get to deal with them) it's at least possible to have alternative qt
debs without the patches applied. I could easily build and provide those.
Say libqt2.2-jp and libqt2.2-nojp where both provide libqt2.2 or something
like that; it's cumbersome but possible.

Not for me and some others. The changelog corresponds exactly to the times
ALT-F2 worked properly or not, from 2.2.1-8 onwards as those were the ones
I've used (skipped a few, but anyways).
