Hi Guix,

This patch series fixes up a few things with GDM.  The main one is that
GDM no longer requires the GNOME Desktop service to be included in the
system services.  It no longer blindly hopes that everything it needs
happens to be in “/run/current-system/profile”.  Now it mostly knows
where to find its dependencies directly, and in the cases it doesn’t, it
makes sure that what it needs is in the system profile.

Around this, I did some cleaning.  GDM now looks directly at its
configuration file in the store rather than at a link in “/etc”, and a
repetitive section of messy substitutions is now a loop.

I added a D-Bus wrapper script as discussed before [1].  It doesn’t do
much, but it is there to be improved if needed.

This series also includes the user X session scripts that were recently
discussed [2].
