Hi,

The sample client I've posted seems to be using the overlay plane.
Also, Daniel Stone confirmed a while back that they can be used.

However it seems that page flipping on the overlay plane can not
be used if the connector is used in the same time (and I'm not 
treating that case -- I disable that connector before handling out the
lease). Or primary plane -> page flipping, overlay -> wait for vblank?

Looking briefly over weston code I see that for overlay planes they use
wait for vblank mechanism. Maybe Daniel/Pekka can confirm this, or
maybe this is an issue with legacy API and atomic doesn't suffer from
this problem. I'm not 100% sure. 

I guess it would be interesting to see if we can use it in the same
time.
