i think you forgot too much. ;)
fifos are the old way and they suck.
the new way are unix sockets, just like in gdm. not one socket, as i use
the path for both identifying and authenticating the client (you liked

hmm. for the fast user switching stuff i will need (almost) the same
code in kicker, kdesktop and kdesktop_lock. and then of course the
shutdown stuff in ksmserver. this multiplied with gdm ... sounds like a
candidate for a library.
