Please note that the current nvidia driver doesn't use DRI. So without support from
nvidia, wayland could only run as X-client on top an accelerated X-Server.
I basically don't see a problem with such a stacked solution. I.e. XGL also solved a
lot of problems with the standard X-Server - what a pity it's not supported any more.
