I'm surprised why ibus is installed on my machine.

Is ibus needed for anything on my machine?
The package claims that it was "Installed as a dependency for another
package", but no package seems to need it.

$ pacman -Qi ibus
Name           : ibus
Version        : 1.5.9-4
Required By    : None
Optional For   : None
Conflicts With : None
Replaces       : None
Install Reason : Installed as a dependency for another package
$ pactree -r ibus

I replaced two packages with dummy packages, non of the
"original" packages does need ibus.

$ pacman -Si pulseaudio gvfs | grep ibus

Has got ibus any effect, when no other package requires it?
