Sounds great! Note that there is some documentation on, for example the "Writing server applications"
is a start on "Mir backend for a window manager" and "Writing client
applications" should be expanded to mention using the API for toolkits

These documents are automatically generated from the source in lp:mir -
merges welcome!

There is some work being done to improve driver documentation, I'll let
those working on that give more details.
