Feature request regarding modularity of DISPLAYMANAGERS in the upcoming fc3

Hello to you.

As you all know the current way of selecting DISPLAYMANAGERS (such as
kdm gdm...) is rather nonmodular. Instead id suggest to use a system
similar to the session entrys (.desktop files) and push an expansion of
the freedesktop.org menu standard regardings DMs. The selection of the
dm could happen via a command line utility that does symlinks.

With above solution one could easly write a dynamic gui for that system
that could also be used as switchdesktop-gui replacement if 2 vars are
exchanged... the dir to look for .desktop files and the symlink to
create ;).

We need a modular system here. if its not going to happen i will have to
override stock packages here with the upcoming fc3 release.
