The problem is that doing this in the bootloader is really not at all
ideal.  You don't have any ability to have a11y and bootloaders suck to
hack on.

This is why the GNOME live CD goes to gdm instead of just doing
automatic login now.  With the facebrowser, you can select the user and
you can also select the language pretty easily
