    Sorry, I can't edit my post (no idea why) so I add here the correction:
    because the compositor is *also* the display server, it can do what it wants.
    (Wayland's architecture)

      Like that old saying goes, "it was hidden in plain sight."
      Are you serious? It was the first shortcut I've learned. Windows use this shortcut too.

          Yes, that's correct. There are two approaches to developing a Wayland desktop - either implementing it as an extension to the Weston compositor, or by writing your own compositor. Both Gnome and KDE are taking the latter approach, so code changes to Weston are irrelevant to them.
