Wayland crash scenario

Hi. As far as I know, X apps always had the ability to reconnect, its just
that none ever did. I don't know why, maybe piximaps or windows states/ID's
where lost or something... Or the idea never caught on. X apps don't crash
when they lose connection to the x server, its just that they all (most)
perform a safe exit action (you can see it in the terminal) and then close,
instead of looking for a new display.
I don't know if its possible or not, but seeing that its client server, I
don't see why it would not be. I have a feeling that Wayland clients would be
able to reconnect, but don't take it from me.
But I agree that this is importiant, If Wayland was to segfault, or if the
user needs to switch to a new instance of the Wayland server, (because of a
new version, wanted to switch to a compositor with a different WM style, or
wanted to leave the desktop session, and remote into the session) it should be
PS I don't know about the last example. It was stated earlier that a custom
version of Wayland could be made to support remote/remote rootless sessions.
It would be a great feature If session could be made remote/local on the fly.
