No.  This idea does nothing but make things complicated.  If you were 
presented with a text-based login setup as you were first introduced to the 
greatest OS of all time, supposedly a Windoze-killer, would you be 
impressed?  I thought not.

XDM has been, is, and will be the way to do logins.  This is what XDM was 
designed for.  Please, stop wasting time on this non-problem.  There are 
more pressing issues.

Also, please try to make sure that replies are sent to seul-dev-ui, and
that the To: lines are cleaned up.  I'm personally getting 2 or three 
copies of every message sent, which gets tiring.
