FYI, I did just that in March - I brought the (previously incomplete)
"gdmconfig" tool to the point of being fully functional. As far as I know,
it will be included in the upcoming 'gdm3' release/module. However, only the
incomplete version has been included with any of the gdm2 releases to date,
which explains why there are issues with the so-called current "gdmconfig"
