IMHO keeping Wayland 1.15 optional is fine for the time being. I would
strongly recommend we make it compulsory around the 18.2 branch point.

This way:
a) devs using master will be less frustrated when their distro is missing 1.15
b) less code and no "hidden" dependency that sometimes cause problems

Since there's a handful of bits that need sorting, I'm re-spinning the series.
I will send it to the backburner in a couple of minutes and it will be
on the list ~10 mins later.
