LightDM as display manager?

Ubuntu and most of its derivatives are switching from the GNOME Display Manager (gdm) to Lightdm. It is apparently much better written and easier to maintain for them.

However, since we are the Ubuntu GNOME Remix, we will be keeping gdm for now, and will evaluate the situation during the next development cycle. One downside is that we may have to support gdm ourselves. However, gdm is still in the main repo for Oneiric.
