I think I'll just leave the session selector as is, since it's not
really an annoyance.

One last detail that bothers me a little. Normally, after installing
LXDM, the user would have to manually edit /etc/rc.d/rc.4 to add a
corresponding stanza:

if [ -x /usr/sbin/lxdm ]; then
  exec /usr/sbin/lxdm

Since my LXDM package will be intended for MLED (where there's only one
single desktop, Xfce, as well as one single login manager, LXDM), I
guess a comfortable way to "integrate" the package would be to add a sed
line to lxdm's doinst.sh, to replace this in rc.4:

# Someone thought that gdm looked prettier in /usr/sbin,
# so look there, too:
if [ -x /usr/sbin/gdm ]; then
  exec /usr/sbin/gdm -nodaemon

... with the above stanza.

Or do you have a better idea?
