Fine - I saw that you presented a Wayland client window picture already.

Well - as I don't have any notion (yet) about what's required here, I'm
totally clueless in this respect - sorry.

Strange - shells should be freely interchangeable I thought, even on a
graphical system, using a terminal program. Isn't that a terminal window
what your Wayland picture shows? I.e. is that just an empty window without
anything able to accept application requests?
(So, you need a "shell" to run a shell program? Funny...)

I sure hope so for Linux, and it's no question for the BSDs and similar
systems anyway, as Wayland, AFAIK, is narrowly targeted on Linux only, and
beyond that, on Linux running systemd. I don't run a systemd Linux...
(And I do not want to.)
