Nice, hope to see it will support embedding in a QWidget as
QtWaylandCompositor lacks multiple features that degrade UX in a major
way with such use-case (QTBUG-74473, QTBUG-105589, QTBUG-107683) and
hope to see its C++ API will be better than QtWaylandCompositor's one
as implementing a simple compositor with C++ API seem to be way harder
than with the QML one.
