Right, if the next release/subrelease doesn't change where the file is,
and of course editing .xml files is sooo much better than, say, plain text

Or, as someone suggested, you could use kdm for login, and right *there*
it offers you a choice of which window manager to use, as opposed to
gnome, that wants to lock you in, like, say, someone north of Seattle....
