wl-shell is deprecated, and pretty much no one uses it.

- R108:7a5447bd17aa: [wayland] Drop wl-shell support
I want to do this, but I'm not 100% sure we can. Have mutter dropped it yet? AFAIK its not marked as deprecated upstream yet
If not, I would like us to send an email to wayland-devel to get feedback first.
I don't see a problem with dropping support for a deprecated protocol. See https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/wayland/wayland/blob/master/protocol/wayland.xml#L985
Mutter still supports wl-shell, however wlroots already dropped support for wl-shell.
That change is not released yet though.
Anyway, as stated above I supoprt this change, but I still won't accept this until we've sent a message about dropping support to wayland-devel to get feedback from other projects first.
I can help with that if needed.
