Xubuntu on XMir discussion

I agree with Shuhao.

Of course the Ubuntu developers would like as many XMir testers as
possible, but I would hate to see the Xubuntu dev team become overburdened
by fundamental experimental technology like this.

In my opinion, Xubuntu should focus on well-tested, proven technology,
sometimes slightly at the expense of fundamental innovations. We can wait
until those innovations are matured....

Regards, Pjotr.
