Mir in a virtual machine

VMware (Thomas Hellstrom) has implemented Mir support. Apparently you 
need kernel 3.13 for the requisite graphics driver DRM changes. And you 
need a newish Mesa.

I don't think anyone has documented the particulars yet. But we 
certainly should at least by the time regular Ubuntu (trusty?) has all 
the prerequisites in place.
