I don't have a very strong opinion on the matter, but I do want to point
out how initially confusing it was that the xdm configuration files are
under /usr/X11R6, but the matching kdm config files are under
/usr/local/share.  Of course gdm puts its files in a different place
under /usr/X11R6 but at least I can "find /usr/X11R6 -name Xsession" to
get that one.

Once I did locate kdm's files, it was no big deal, but it was an extra
step to go through.
