well, it doesn't have to be that way - the daemon could determine the
display the client runs on. of course that would require a lot of
additional infrastructure in the servers to be able to deal with
multiple displays. and the logging to .xsession-errors (which kdm makes
per-display) would be somewhat unpredictable (whereever the daemon was
started first, unless it does its own output redirection).

so i don't think this is really a good idea. it's ok to *add* a user
bus, but not to *replace* the session bus.
