No, because SurfaceFlinger cannot co-exist with my work. In the far
future it might, but not soon.
However, in theory, it should be possible to run xwayland with the
wlshm output driver. Of course, you'd have to port everything needed for
X to the Android build and runtime environment, which might be months
of dedicated work (a wild guess).
