I've checked the wiki but Xorg is not even mentioned there.

The Mir server will not be able to communicate with X applications but you will be able to run the Xorg server with a Mir backend that bridges X applications to Mir. This is the same solution as done in Apple (XQuartz), Wayland (XWayland) etc. The server will be called XMir.

And this will be the way all GTK applications will be running with Mir? –  Hibou57 Apr 6 '13 at 13:28

I was searching the wrong words, this feature is planned for October 2013.

The most prominent toolkit choices which include Qt/QML, GTK3, XUL etc. will get native support, others - an in-session rootless X server that is integrated with Mir.

Interesting, will this be reminiscent of how mac handles X11 applications? (It launches x server that is its own program) –  Mateo_ Mar 5 '13 at 22:21
