If I understand it properly, the basic plan David proposed I think is
pretty elegant. As you may know, the session programs search a
1. systemwide mandatory settings (set by sysadmin)
2. per-user settings
3. systemwide default settings (set by sysadmin)
4. factory default settings
The proposal is that if nobody is logged in, we want to use *exactly*
this same search, but minus number 2. What that means is that if you set
the default or mandatory configuration for all users, that configuration
is automatically also used when there are no users logged in.
What this also means is that the code for the "session programs" and the
code for the systemwide / nobody-logged-in daemon *should* be 99% the same.
Right now we have some historical daemons that are systemwide only and
some historical daemons that are session only, and we need to evolve
them toward the above goal instead.
