yep, i like it and  i'll try!
some times tough some help is needed to even figure out where the problem is...
for tme the thing that makes my laptop unusable with wayland is a very bad 
flicker in many qwidget apps, especially kate and to a lesse extent dolphin are 
pretty much blinking like disco lights just by moving the mouse on top of the 
app window.

Where should i start to look about that?
