This depends on us implementing our own lock screen as tinydm is more like an autologin.

This bug depends on us fixing #44 as ~proycon notes.

This mostly works. I think we should just drop the "logout" entry cause it make no sense anymore.

I'm not sure if we should merge this patch until we have a lock with passphrase mecanism. Let's keep it in the mailing for the moment.

Let's keep this one for 1.6.0 rather than 1.5.0 yes, then we can focus on a passphrase mechanism.

I'm not sure how things work with tinydm, but I already have autologin/not using xdm. I use the "logout" entry to restart dwm. Could we have a "restart dwm" entry? Hopefully the only option isn't to reboot or kill the process from command line.

A logout will make sense once there is an actual lock with a passphrase. "restart dwm" and "logout" would have the same functionality, assuming the locking mechanism is automatically started.
