The series looks good to me and I've commited it as is. I did wonder
about a couple of things in the text protocol though:
- Why is there a seat argument to text_model.deactivate?
- Should the text_model.activated event carry the surface and seat it
was activated for? The protocol is asynchronous and we could in
theory have deactivated and activated another surface when the
client receives the activate event.
- Are text_model.enter/leave better names for
text_model.activated/deactivated? It seems like these events are
similar to wl_keyboard.enter/leave, and I think it's better to be
consistent with that.
- The text_model.key event introduces keysym in the protocol and
assumes XKB keycodes. I think that's fine, but I'm wondering if we
need to communicate the keycode namespace we're using there
