    doc: start documenting Xwayland · 14761780
    Pekka Paalanen authored
    This is a rough intro to what Xwayland is and does, with just one
    implementation detail so far (Window identification).
    
    I paid no attention to formatting details, those can be polished in
    follow-ups. I just want the prose out.
    
    I also just quickly whacked up the diagram, would be happy to see
    someone replace it with a nicer one. I just didn't have time to learn
    dot for now.
    
    v2:
    - typo fix
    - rephrase "talking to hardware" as "driving the displays"
    - mention circular dependency in intro
    - add section to explain rootless and rootful modes
    - remove paragraph about Xwayland protocol usage
    - move TBD part to the end under a new section header
    
    v3:
    - use "advantage" and "disadvantage" instead of "pro" and "con"
    - slight rewording on rootful mode and rootless mode paragraphs
    - removed the paragraph about the lack of shell and special Wayland
      protocol extensions
    - removed the commented out list of ideas to write
    
    v4:
    - typo fixes pointed out by Yong
