* its value will be replaced with the WAYLAND_DISPLAY environment
* variable if it is set, otherwise display "wayland-0" will be used.
* If WAYLAND_SOCKET is set, it's interpreted as a file descriptor number
* referring to an already opened socket. In this case, the socket is used
* as-is and \c name is ignored.
* If \c name is a relative path, then the socket is opened relative to
* the XDG_RUNTIME_DIR directory.
* If \c name is an absolute path, then that path is used as-is for
* the location of the socket at which the Wayland server is listening;
* no qualification inside XDG_RUNTIME_DIR is attempted.
