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.
