Support for Multimonitor

Registered by kevin gunn on 2013-06-24

This blueprint is meant to capture the tasks associated with enabling multimonitor support with Mir, targeting the 13.10 xmir release. This would include hotplugging monitors, as well as projectors. The effort should be focused on delivering for the 13.10 desktop experience, however the architecture should support the future inclusion of mobile multi-display.
