You have not actually tried it, have you ? Your 10000 network users are
not going to show up in the user list, since we only populate the list

if you go the XML route you MUST provide a tool to manipulate it.
Not sure which xml file you are talking about. Last time I
checked, /etc/gdm/custom.conf had the same format as always...
