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....
