Purging all *hybris* packages from my system made
unity-system-compositor work for me.

I also had libhybris installed, and removing it fixed xmir. No "somehow" about it though, I had to install that manually back when I was doing packaging work on a bunch of ubuntu touch stuff that depended on it at the time.

So, first impressions: kb input is slightly laggy but only sometimes, VT switching is *so* smooth! But I can confirm that known bug about the kb input going to both Xmir and the vt. Funny how the reverse isn't true; typing in XMir doesn't make the output show up in the vt. 

Also, my caps/ctrl keys have gone crazy! Normally, I have caps mapped to ctrl, and ctrl is normal (so I have two ctrl keys on the left side). Then today before I got xmir working, it started to be that caps is ctrl but ctrl is caps, and now after booting into xmir it's gone even more weird, where both l_ctrl and caps act as caps! So now r_ctrl is my only ctrl key! Makes keyboard shortcuts quite difficult to use!
