No. These patches breaks many of the core goals of wayland/weston with DE-like features.
<krh> weston isn't going to be a full DE, starting a new DE is specifically a non-goal of wayland
<krh> and I've always said that fleshing out wl_shell will have to wait until we have at least one real DE to driver the work
<krh> otherwise it's all just going to be guesswork
