But then, gdm start-up becomes incredibly faster, because all of the
XFree86 code is already in memory!

I'm told one of the greatest start-up time hogs in rhgb has to do with
the font cache, that gets trashed.  A fix for this is already in the
works, maybe even already in rawhide.

That said, it would be very nice if the time rhgb takes to start up
didn't prevent other init services from getting started.
