There is a big difference between turning something off by default and 
deliberately breaking an upstream feature that can only be enabled by 
someone knowledgeable enough to edit a configuration file.  I would say 
that if KDM supports this, and a sysadmin wants it, it's not our place 
to remove the feature unconditionally.

What do we break next ? Remote X logins ?
