then wouldn't it be better to have a way for kde to work when being too
broken ( ie, a safe mode, like windows and firefox ) ?

Because I doubt that people who are targeted by this feature of having a
2nd X session are also able to fix a kde session problem ( since the 3
examples people gave to me were KDE related ).

IE, if you know how to fix, tty can be enough, and if you don't know how
to fix, I doubt that running lxde may bring such a added value.
