Seemed as in not any more or seemed as in you guys (Red Hat) are in the
process of deciding whether to switch to upstream method? Maybe adding
this back into GDM would help with bugs like the following no?
 http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=121840
 http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=121813
So, what was this "elaborate rationale" for keeping Red Hat's patch for
using switchdesk? With switchdesk, I have never been able to add another
WM to it's GUI (the ones in there are hardcoded?) but have been able to
get an entry for it in the GDM session screen. Therefore, if there was
an "Make default" on the GDM session screen, this should mean I could
make the new WM permanent.
