Note this is in rawhide, early in the Fedora 24 devel cycle.  If things don't
work out, going back isn't hard.

We fall back to X in cases when we notice things aren't working, just
as we do for the login screen.
Remember we've been shipping the login screen on wayland for 2 releases now.
And we provide a config option to turn wayland off explicitly for
cases where users just want or need
to use X.
