No, xdm cannot do this. But as far as I remember, wdm can -- it has
some look & feel of the original CDE display manager and it designed
to work well with WindowMaker, but it's a very nice replacement for
xdm if you need that specific functionality. It's quite lightweight
(compared to gdm or kdm) and easily configurable.
