I could've sworn I recently saw an xdm variant that let you pick (from a
pull-down menu) which window manager you were going to use for that login.
It might have been gnome-based. I don't remember it very well.

I believe there's a little tk script that starts after you start X, and
allows you to pick which window manager you want to boot that time.
Assuming we approve of tk as a language, that might be a good start. (It's
somewhere on freshmeat. Again, no clue what the name is.)

I recompiled my kernel, and the first time I did that I got a compile
error. Guess Linus (er, Alan now) got sloppy with 2.0.36. :) But I fixed
that, so sound ought to work. Haven't tried it yet.
