Well, I wasn't thinking just "nicer", I was thinking "cross-desktop". If
the machine is running kdm and the user chooses "GNOME session" when
logging in, he should still be able to reboot/shutdown the machine,
which means gnome-session will need to coordinate that with kdm.
Likewise with running a KDE session from gdm.
