The closest integration I expect in gdm. Ideally I'd like to rip out the
current CK support completely and replace it entirely by the more
low-level systemd specific code. However, that I can only do if the
outcome of this discussion is clear.
Is it possible to do this, but maintain the ConsoleKit CLI, D-Bus
interfaces, and configuration interfaces (e.g. /etc/ConsoleKit) for
backwards compatibility? If these interfaces need to change, can you
provide some perspective about how much they need to change?
I wonder if it might be reasonable for systems that do not support
systemd to continue using ConsoleKit. Will #ifdef's be allowed in
GDM? If GDM is changed to become Linux specific, then does this mean
that non-Linux systems need to migrate to a different display manager?
I now know GDM is a "Core" GNOME application. If a different display
manager is used to access a GNOME desktop, then can you still call your
desktop "GNOME"? Can you swap out a Core GNOME program and still call
