This doesn't affect POLA or launch from /etc/ttys at all.
You must define in /etc/rc.conf:
before this can launch kdm.
the main goal is a way to share a launch method between gdm/kdm/xdm.
Also, have a easy way of cope with http://www.kde.org/areas/sysadmin/
without touching kde packages.
The only I request from kde@ are some advice in web or pkg-message.
This doesn't deprecate launch of kdm from /etc/ttys.
