Maybe, but having the option to get into console mode too would be
nice. Sometimes, you might not want X to start up when you reboot. (I
don't do this very often, but I know there are people that do)

Are you *absolutely* sure? The reason I ask is because I've been
having this exact problem with gpm lately. I like to start it
occasionally, because it interfers with my X configuration, so I use
to remove the symlinks. Each and every time gpm is updated (two times
the last week), they have been brought back to life. Pretty annoying,
if you ask me.
