Almost. On my laptop, I've got gdm in runlevel 2, no gdm but extra
getty's in runlevel 3, and no gdm, extra getty's and no power management
(to get full performance even if on the road) in runlevel 4. I'm
thinking of configuring a "no power, with X" runlevel, and a "minimal"
runlevel which would run with "almost nothing", just the basics required
to do something useful.

Good enough? ;)
