    Xwayland DDX · 6e539d88

    Started out as an Xorg module to be used from Xorg drivers to let
    Xorg run under a wayland server.  The idea was to be able to reuse the
    2D acceleration from the Xorg driver.  Now with glamor being credible,
    a better plan is to just make Xwayland its own DDX, similar to Xwin
    and Xquartz.  This is a much better fit, as much of the code in the
    original approach had to hack around Xorg doing Xorg things like take
    over the VT, probe input devices and read config files.  Another big win
    is that Xwayland dosn't need to be setuid root.
    The Xwayland support for DRI3, Glamor and render nodes was done by
    Axel Davy <axel.davy@ens.fr>, who also did a lot of work on the rebase
    to the Xwayland DDX.
