[xubuntu-users] Any planned gdm replacements?

The current (Karmic) gdm is for Gnome only. In any other environment it
increases boot time (loading and unloading metacity etc...) and is
bloated beyond need.

What are the plans for the next xubuntu release? Currently I'm using a
debian version of slim on 5 computers to get rid of 15-30 seconds of
added boot time in Karmic due to the new gdm.

Keep up the excellent work!
