Using gdm with autologin is probably ok, but you don't want to show the
regular GDM login screen before Sugar boots, do you?

We could slightly modify olpc-switch-desktop to create the file that gdm
looks for to choose the session. It could create _both_ files, so the
package could be shared between SoaS and OLPC builds.

Even better, it could do what the standard switchdesk package does:
create a ~/.Xclients and ~/.Xclients-default file, which should work
with any display manager as long as they execute xinit.

If olpc-dm does not execute xinit, it probably should.
