start-desktop using a single display

Follow up from #1206.
Instead of starting Xephyr nested in a mostly unused Xvfb display, we should be able to start the Xvfb and watch the root window directly for damage events.
This should work without having to enable the Composite extension, without redirecting any windows, which would be more compatible with some rendering mechanisms which are not currently supported, notably some multi display native graphics card modes.
We would not need to run as window manager on the vfb display at all, simplifying the code greatly (no need for focus management, etc - just direct mouse and keyboard events).
