I agree, but we discussed this before and thought that it was too much
of a leap for right now.  Once we have session shepherd instances, we
could consider replacing the whole of “gdm-x-session” with launching a
session shepherd that would in-turn launch D-Bus and X and whatever
else.  That will be great, but it will take a lot longer.  In the
meantime, we might as well get GDM working the old way.
