Packaging of Wayland session

Hi KDE distro packagers,

as you probably are aware Plasma 5.5 is the first release shipping a Wayland 
session file. In the current state the session is not much usable as can be 
seen in the known issues section.

Given that I expect that distributions move the relevant files
 * startplasmacompositor
 * startplasma
 * plasmawayland.desktop

into a dedicated package (plasma-desktop-wayland-session) and do not install 
it by default! We don't want users to select the Wayland session by accident 
and run into a broken system.

Also please see for advice on how to 
package the Wayland session elements.

Best Regards
Martin Gräßlin
