I wouldn't use wayland if thats the case, the kind of security risk this
creates is massive. you could have clients that refuse to cooerate and
always take up the entire screen, or worse, rendering your computer useless.
also I never like muti window apps like the gimp, or openoffice. they draw
your attention away from what your doing to rearrange these little windows,
and what ever you do don't close them or would could spend the next hour
trying to get them back. there sould always be central system for making
windows behave or they won't
