LXDM [1] is a new gtk-based login manager from the LXDE folks, but I haven't
been able to take a look at it.  If it is secure, works well and doesn't
introduce feature regressions, it may make a good candidate to replace GDM
for Xubuntu.

That isn't a promise, though.  We may find that feature improvements in
later releases of GDM make it the best option for Xubuntu.
