Well, I favour whatever works eventually.

If I were to do it myself, I would take the libmutter route, because I know
mutter's code base quite well (being part of my paid job), but reality is I
am not actively working on a port of xfce to Wayland (spending all my
-working- time on Wayland related things already).

All that to say, wlroots is probably the easiest way forward, considering
it replicates a lot of the EWMH design that xfce uses on X11.
