Ah-hah!  It's -also- included in Debian.  And here I was looking at Gnome
console stuff, and never thinking of GDM.  While I don't -think- gdmconfig
is quite what I wanted, it's damn close -- at least now my user can
gracefully shut down without having to go to virtual consoles, use "sudo",

Much appreciated,
