Except scenarios when people want to manage GDM themes (almost one of
four situations) or when they want to create auto login, or...

That is really shortsighted argument that gdmsetup is only used by
admins. It is used by common users, as most of other configuration
tools (no matter how buggy they are).

There MUST be a gdmsetup replacement. Period. Why we have this
conversation in fact? It was the same with gio/gvfs, when "who cares
when there is no Connect to Server...dialog" was a top tune here.

I personally as user can accept that gdm is released without config
tool, but I would really like to see development of new one.

Just my two cents,
