Plasma on Wayland

This starts Wayland server with some basic interfaces

  • shm
  • compositor
  • seat
  • shell
  • output

And starts nested kwin_wayland.

This then uses the QPainter backend of kwin_wayland to
render the content on QQuickItem and also translates the
qt quick events into the FakeInput events for kwin_wayland.

Currently mouse and keyboard input events are supported.

FWIW, this code now lives on in some code I'm writing (with EGL support as well as SHM).

I don't think this is the right place. Kwin isn't going to be the one using it, and it's not kwin specific - so it would be weird to depend on kwin in an external project.

So I'm going to close this. Hope that's ok.
