Note that due to boring release engineering technicalities (changes to
comps don't really take effect until after the next mash), this change
probably didn't land entirely in Final TC3. I haven't checked yet, but I
suspect TC3 will still be using SDDM but the KDE live kickstart will
have been switched back to 'KDM mode', so the TC3 KDE live may be a bit
busted (autologin broken). It should all shake out cleanly for TC4 (or
RC1 if, by some miracle, that's the next build after TC3).

I did build a test live image locally here to make sure a KDE live built
with KDM worked correctly, and it seems fine, so I don't anticipate any
problems from this once it shakes out.
