Thank you for this advice. In fact, I started to study gdm, for at least 
three reasons :
- I think that the need for some is a light version of gdm (no network 
transparency, no bonobo & gconf dependencies).
- IMHO, a light version of gdm must be nice looking, especially for 
linux's beginners.
- For the moment, It's not realistic to start from scratch.
