See this is part of the problem.  I don't WANT to be a Mir stakeholder.  I 
want to focus my Kubuntu work on packaging KDE and making it work well.  
Historically, one of the great things about Kubuntu has been that we could 
rely on the work of the X team to give us a great display system with up to 
date hardware support that we didn't have to worry about.
