Is it possible to put some sort of "intelligence" into this setup? Eg. if 
something i X/kdm is broken it would *stop* trying to start them?

Sometimes I've got to do at hard-reset of my machine and boot into single-user 
and change /etc/ttys because something is broken but FBSD keeps trying to 
start kdm/X and hinders me to get to at console.
