James, All,

Sorry for the delay in replying to this one...

I agree that we should split it into its own package.

Do all the backends really make sense for the imx fork?

I.e. I would expect that the drm, rdp, etc... backends do not make
sense (maybe just the fbdev one?) and that the oter backends would be
provided only by the real weston, leaving the imx fork nly provide the
backend for imx.

Which implies that we should allow bioth westons to be installed side by
side, and that the imx variant be installed as 'weston-imx', e.g. using
the ./configure flag:

    --program-suffix=-imx
