    I'm really not an expert, but isn't compositing kinda the point of Wayland, as in baked into the very fabric of its being? I thought the whole perfect frame, no tearing/flickering concept was dependent on compositing, and Wayland is a lightweight way of achieving compositing. Whereas tiling is a distinctly xorg concept, with WMs leveraging xorg's overreaching desire to draw it's own windows.

    Tiling WMs have a different way of arranging windows (no overlapping windows), in opposite to stacking WMs, like KWin, Openbox, ... . It has nothing to do with compositing and it is not a Xorg concept.
    I indeed would also like a port of i3 to Wayland.

    The swc developer has a dmenu port. I just hope swc gets updated for the xwayland changes though

    If nothing else, I salute you for your choice of a name.
    Well done Sir.
    sorry to disappoint, but continuing the wayland/weston theme, it's another small town around the US-20 west of boston.
