But gdm can never provide an interface on the D-Bus session bus in a
desktop session. And it shouldn't - gdm is highly sensitive code so we
want as few attack vectors as possible. However, gdm can (and already
does) provide a mechanism that e.g. gnome-session (which should provide
org.fd.SessionManagement) can use. Hope this clarifies.
