You can!

See wm/velox. Read MESSAGE.

Weston is pretty Linuxy. Might have another look at it at some point, but
I'm trying to rely on shims and compat as little as possible.

You might notice devel/wayland has been patched to use kqueue directly.
Similarly, velox has been patched to use wscons directly.

But, again, I want to talk about this at FOSDEM... :)
