I do understand that people like theming but I also believe theming a
login screen leads to bad results. We should permit people to do so
but it's not a stopper for me.

I think if we ship gdm 2.24, a working themeable greeter
implementation and a configuration GUI will popup in the Ubuntu forums
during the first month.

It's like telling people we can't ship an audio player because it does
not handle GUI skins yet. Most of us want a working tool in the first
place, customizable GUI is just an eye-candy gimmick :)
