I can understand that. (Actually, what I was suggesting was far
from a complete rewrite - it probably wouldn't involve changing
more than 20% of the code. But it is a significant amount of
new code.)

To me, that sounds like a local patch. Session management is
used in quite a few places in GNOME. I don't think we want
to try and deal with all the interactions of removing session
management in the official version of GNOME.
