Replying to myself, for the others that were wondering, after some help
and some looking around on the web, I noticed there is actually a XDMCP
HOWTO (part of the LDP Howto's, means that all up-to-date woody or sid
Debian installations that have the "Standard" packages will have at
least a plaintext version it, /usr/doc/HOWTO). Since March, it seems.
