To get antialiased fonts in the GDM login screen, yes.

Hmmm.  Strange.  I admit I never tried it with gdm1, but I don't see why
it wouldn't work.  Can someone else confirm it fails with gdm1?

No idea about this, it works fine here...

Hmmm.  I would rather it just worked well out of the box.  I think what
we should do is turn on AA by default, and  (jamesh has mentioned this a
few times) ship a nice /etc/X11/XftConfig, and make sure it works well. 
The people who don't like it will be able to turn it off easily enough.
