 Libweston design goals
-The high-level goal of libweston is that what used to be shell plugins
-will be main executables. Instead of launching 'weston' with various
-arguments to choose the shell, one would be launching
-'weston-desktop', 'weston-ivi', 'orbital', etc. The main executable
-(the hosting program) links to libweston for a fundamental compositor
-implementation. Libweston is also intended for use by other projects
-who want to create new "Wayland WMs".
-The libweston API/ABI will be separating the shell logic and main
-program from the rest of the "Weston compositor" (libweston
+The high-level goal of libweston is to decouple the compositor from
+the shell implementation (what used to be shell plugins).
+Thus, instead of launching 'weston' with various arguments to choose the
+shell, one would launch the shell itself, eg. 'weston-desktop',
+'weston-ivi', 'orbital',etc. The main executable (the hosting program)
+will implement the shell, while libweston will be used for a fundamental
+compositor implementation.
