i don't think so. this will be additional programs that will stop during
installation, and no program should stop during installation if it isn't
absolut neccessary.

better ways :
a) add a xdmconfig script, that brings up a dialog with all instaleld
windown managers and let's the admin chose a default one.
b) find a better chooser, that will let the user choose his favorite
window manager.
