Misc: A "please suspend" event from the compositor
Submitted by Darxus XXX
Assigned to Wayland bug list
A "please suspend" event from the compositor, to indicate to an application that it's no longer visible/active. Or maybe discard buffer, as in "wayland discarded your buffer, it's no longer visible, you can stop updating it now.", reattach, as in "oh hey, I'm about to show your buffer that I threw away, what was it again?". for wayland system compositor vt switcing, for example, to be able to throw away the surfaces in the session we're switching away from. for minimized windows that we don't want live thumb nails for. etc.
