Wow! Thank you Jan! This looks like exactly what I need, and this is
not a systemd/elogind rip-off of any sort, just a well designed open

man I REALLY LOVE FreeBSD :-) :-)

This could be an alternative of some sort, but when SeatD is out there
already, no need to work on dead-by-design-linux-centric stuff :-)

Thank you! :-)
