One of the many concerns I have with Wayland involves VNC.  Right now
VNC on X uses some of the multiuser functions to enable multiple VNC
consoles.  Will Wayland still allow for this or will we be back to
Windows with only one VNC session per computer.  Linux/Unix is
designed around multiuser/multisession, I believe we would be amiss to
remove those capabilities from the OS.
