[Development] Are there any limitations on implementing the changing of the screen for a QWindow on systems using EGLFS?

Sure, you could add something like that on top once the basic multiple QScreen support is in place. (for HDMI at least, replicating more or less what 'tvservice' does. Not sure what (if any) API you have for other type of displays, though.)

Can't we do something similar to QT_QPA_EGLFS_KMS_CONFIG and share the
json file setup here as well ? This would make it way more consistent.
