wayland: disable by default for gnome
It turns out that gnome wayland still has very serious issues that make it unusable for playback with mpv. Other compositors mostly behave fine (Plasma is just missing feature but it's not seriously broken), so GNOME gets the special honor of having a warning printed out. The only solution for GNOME users at this time of writing is to either use the Xorg session or use another wayland compositor.
