Hi Pekka,

Thanks for your reply!

Then how to set mirror (clone) mode for multi-monitors via 
~/.config/weston.ini [OUTPUT SECTION] by mode, transform or seat?
It is often extend mode by default when plugin new monitor, so I 
consider about XRandR naturally, the xrandr utility can set mirror mode 
by --output XXX --same-as ...

If there is NO support for weston yet, why not randr protocol skeleton 
implementation just for fun ;-)
