I talked to Brian Cameron a bit about GDM theme accessibility at the last Boston GNOME Summit, and from him I understood that only the positions of some of the buttons would have to be changed around and some buttons that are not currently displayed would have to be. But beyond that I don't see how making the GDM theme more accessible would necessarily change the themeability of the login screen?

Changing to the plain greeter (you can try it out in gdmsetup) would
mean theming by background image + whatever length we want to go to
theme a regular gtk+ application, as opposed to the somewhat obscure and uncooperative canvas format of the themed greeter. The themed lock
dialog and the F7 incarnation of rhgb are proof that this does not
really restrict the extent to which the screen can be themed.

Oh okay. Would it not be acceptable if a nice GDM theme was proposed that didn't use the plain greeter yet had all the necessary buttons and menu items to make it accessible?
