I'm probably using the wrong terminology. I think the Qt Quick term is 

So, part 1 is a platform plugin that is used by the Mir server/compositor 
process. This is a normal platform plugin, like the xcb plugin or eglfs.

The window manager logic is typically written in QML. That QML needs an 
"import Unity.Application". This import is implemented in src/modules. That 
directory should probably be renamed as part of the upstreaming process.
