If you want you can use "startx" as your screen script (SCREEN_07=startx).  Don't forget to enable XDMCP on your server.  You'll still use ldm, but after login all
your traffic will be like it was in LTSP 4.2.  My Debian system also has an "xdmcp" screen script.  I haven't tried it,
but you may want to experiment with it.

You could also look at running LTSP 4.2 on certain thin clients, if that's the only way to improve performance.  See
