Thank you Olivier, this is very much appreciated!

Let me know if there is anything I could help you with. However, I'm not
sure there's much I can offer, because I assume things would mostly
revolve around the Xwayland server, X11, EWMH & friends, and the XWM in
each Wayland compositor (Weston included) - all things I know very
little about.
