  Well communication goes both ways for example to be able to get user
input in kudzu.

  I don't think we can completely merge both but, integrating part of gdm
functionalities within rhgb, for example to allow login before the boot 
finishes is one of the future improvement.
  I plan to write down within a couple of weeks how I would like rhgb to
improve and evolve. Parallel startup is only one of the aspects of getting
a shorter and smoother "time to session from boot" which is IMHO the real
design goal.
