Disabling and re-enabling Mir; Opinion: Release Mir with 13.10

One person (forgot who) was running with Mir for a bit and was unhappy
with the experience. This person did not want to go through the bother
of reinstalling their PC with something else + catchup + customizations
as they wanted to keep on trying the preview of Xubuntu 13.10. Maybe
someone else feels the same?
So, based on the collective conversation we had on 2013-08-15, this will
let you disable or re-enable Mir:
1) Open a terminal window.
2) sudo /your-favorite-text-editor/
3) On the line which reads, type=unity, insert an '#' in column 1,
making the line a comment.
4) Save and exit.
5) sudo reboot
Enabling is almost the same set of steps (put the '#' back in step 3).
Consider this: It would still be useful to release Mir with 13.10, even
if it is turned off (commented out) by default. Then, adventurous folks
could turn it on (enable Mir) and take it out for a spin.
Smile and don't forget to have fun this weekend!
