Agree mostly Khad - I don't feel happy with the idea of removing
passwords from users given the approach Ubuntu has chosen. It would be
much better to find a way of keeping user's passwords, but just have GDM
not ask for them for certain users if logging on locally. Just like KDM
can be configured to behave.
