We can't do that with gmd rigth now.  I've this in my TODO list, but I'm  
not a gnome hacker.
I'm also in the way to get gdm/kdm/xdm config without dynamic tty alloc,  
that can't suffle of init race problems.

Really, I prefer a ready /etc/rc.d/xdm script and not need it that the  
opposite case.
