Autofit guest screen resolution doesn't work on Wayland without installing xf86-video-vmware

Additional info:
open-vm-tools 6:10.2.0-2

Should it be an optdep at least? Maybe a full dep? I'm not sure which.
This task depends upon

Wait, it needs the XOrg DDX on Wayland? That sounds insane.

It surprised me too... I went months without autofit working not realizing that was why.

I don't know the technical reason, just that installing xf86-video-vmware does fix it.
