Of course.  These people build the Machines they install XDM on.  They
X will work the way it's configured on that system all the time.  Unless
user turns root and deletes something or a chip on the card goes pop.
The challenge to SEUL is to make an X install that will work in 99.9998%
systems.  ( I have seen a VGA system that couldn't run Win3.11 in basic
... that is the missing .0002% )
