Well, it's important to keep in mind that the only part of the
protocol the driver needs to care about is essentially it's own buffer
sharing interface. For mesa, that's wl_drm. The changes that we've
made recently (my big dnd/selection change and Pekkas wl_shell
changes) doesn't affect the driver. In X terms, you can think of it
as changes to Xdnd and EWMH - changes that doesn't in anyway affect
the drivers or any ABI/API/protocol interface to the driver.
