when setting up a diskless terminal with a shared read-only root
filesystem, it is very difficult to start a different display manager on
each diskless terminal.

if /etc/init.d/xdm (and gdm, kdm, wdm) were patched to check that
HEED_DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER is not set before setting it to true, it
would be easier to invoke a different display manager on each individual

HEED_DEFAULT_DISPLAY_MANAGER=false /etc/init.d/xdm start

the attached patch would allow for this sort of behavior.
