    So can you use QXL to run Wayland under a virtual machine?

    From what I take it, Wayland can only run on llvmpipe in a virtual machine. This is because QXL does not support EGL + the required extension as far as I know.

    Would be nice though.

    Aww...

    Hope QXL gets EGL support and that required extension then.
