Yes, I think we could start with whatever we have and then augment it.

It would be nice to release a 0.9.1 soonish that would include GDM and
GNOME-Shell (and NM.)

Shouldn’t we do something like ‘slim-service’ does, i.e., give GDM the
name of the X server program via a config file or whatever?

Having /run/setuid-programs/X is likely to be insufficient because X
needs to be passed an xorg.conf file that specifies the search path for
Xorg modules, etc.

Great, thanks!
