Something like that would be nice.  Sporadically there have been
complaints from people who want multiple sendmail MTAs installed.  It
is the same problem as being discussed with imapd.  This mechanism
could be used there too.

An alternative is the xdm/gdm/kdm way of coordinating between the
packages.  That works too.  It could be enough to have packages that
listen on a port coordinate with each other.
