A perpetual goal of the Desktop Team is to try to reduce our patch
delta with upstream. GDM is one of the most heavily patched components
in Ubuntu that now is no longer being shipped by default on the main
CD. I'd like to see us at least reduce our delta with Debian to make
our maintenance easier.

Is Debian's renaming to gdm3 permanent? Using the same package names
makes looking at a diff quite a bit simpler, so I'd like to see us
follow Debian's naming practice.
