Default Will REAPER become a native Wayland application?

More and more Linux distributions, desktop environments (DE), and window managers (WM) are transitioning to Wayland or including it in their roadmaps, such as KDE Plasma 6 and XFCE.

In my opinion, if REAPER were to become a native Wayland application, it would offer several benefits:
  • Smoother GUI control: Xwayland applications can sometimes exhibit lag.
  • No more blurriness in REAPER when using fractional scaling. Fractional scaling in Xwayland REAPER can result in excessive blurriness.
  • WINE VST plugins could also run on Wayland once it fully supports Wayland.
X11 is gradually becoming obsolete with reduced maintenance, while Wayland is the present and future.

So, what are your thoughts, both users and developers?
