Wikipedia is apparently way behind.  It was started, and it was stopped
because xcb turns out to require a complete redesign of xmonad.  Likewise,
there is no intent to port xmonad to Wayland; it could not be done as a
port, but requires a complete redesign from scratch.

Other people are welcome to do such redesigns if they wish.
