I think it would be wise to first take a look (and a testdrive) of Jose's work
before roundabout dismissing it.
As the author of the kdm-stuff in the current kdebase port, I'm aware of the
flaws it has and how support-intensive it has been - Jose's doing work on this
in order to _work_ with this, so the support-question is indeed interesting
here. Also, gdm has been launched from an rc-script for quite some time now,
hence the POLA question isn't so clear cut - and depending on how Jose's
implementation actually looks like, users might never have to 'upgrade' to the
rc-script way if they choose not to.
So, please, let's be open-minded here (it's kind of weird that I of all people
have to write this, since I've been the ever-sceptic about this whole topic
