I made it so that by default the sanitizer is used to turn the string
"seat" into a group and used (ice-9 match), reducing some needless
redundancy.  I also reworded the manual to the best of my ability
following our conversations and adapted the commit message.

I fixed some minor issue in the manual and reindented the marionette-
type in the tests, also reworded the commit message.

I didn't get the chance to run the system tests – some timeout causes
the marionette build to fail on my machine – but I verified
independently that at least the seatd socket has the right permissions.
I hope this will be enough for you to get gtkgreet running.
