The X11 compositor you get when you run wayland under X.

My X system is stock Ubuntu running Unity, though I suspect that has 
little to do with it.

There is "xwayland" inside weston. Weston I am using the main branch, 
and I configure and compile and install it with:

./autogen.sh --prefix=$HOME/install --disable-setuid-install 
make install

xserver: I am using the xwayland-1.12 branch from 
git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver. Configure/make/install is:

./autogen.sh --prefix=$HOME/install
make install

Also I am compiling/installing xserver after xwayland, not sure if this 
is the correct order.

I am rather mystified as to why there is both an xserver and xwayland 
code in weston, any quick explanation would be appreciated.

No, only xf86-video-ati, xf86-video-intel, xf86-video-wlshm. I had to 
compile tons of stuff in order to get xserver to compile, which is 
really annoying. Most of it I suspect is never used.

If I add this, how do I tell the Xserver that it exists? Do I just have 
to install it, or do I have to recomfigure and recompile Xserver?

I am also dubious that this has anything to do with it, as my test 
applications are not using xv.
