My god, George.  We have to stop agreeing like this.  People will start to talk.

Surely can.  I use XDM all the time.  

I've never messed with m4 but it sounds like just the ticket.

Got it covered.  I posted a few days ago about some of the configuring I've
done to my XDM.

Background, fonts, change to runlevel 1, suspend the Xserver to drop to
console, restart the Xserver to change resources, reboot the system,
shutdown/halt the system.  All from the XDM login screen.  No switching to VT
and no logging in to use an xterm or menu selection first.

Taking suggestions for system controle from the XDM screen.  Let 'em fly.
