One solution is to run KDM, which lets one choose their windowmanager/etc.
when they log in (and then proceeds to remember that and use it until
they change it later).

Of course, if you don't want a *DM...

Yes, you'd want to tweak these guys.  And as for the best way about it,
I dunno.  I stick with *DMs.  (GDM on my Gnome box at work and on Melissa's
Gnome box at home, and KDM on my KDE box at home - BTW, KDM appears more
flexible (surprise, surprise)... XDM is butt-ugly... there are other
alternatives I've never used (see Freshmeat.net))
