Drag/Drop support for Wayland

Drag/Drop support for Wayland

Currently drag/drop between host and guest does not work for Linux guests that use Wayland. X11 works fine. Normally I'd say use X11 sessions, but with recent Linux distros, X11 exhibits severe issues when 3D acceleration is enabled. that make it unusable. Not sure this will be fixed because it appears that Xorg is not being supported very well lately. 

Please implement drag/drop support for Wayland.

This feature is going to be needed soon.

An X11 session uses the X.org Server for rendering. The X.org Server is no longer being maintained. Red Hat is dropping it in RHEL 10. Other distros are no doubt planning to do so as well. (Programs that use the X11 API will still function through XWayland.)
