Yes, it has been asked several times on this list, you might want to
search the archives for the previous discussions. The status is that I
am still working on it, it doesn't work with Fedora's prefdm script but
I am have met with Robert Ancell (LightDM author) at the Desktop Summit
and we are working on it.

Once it is in Fedora we probably move to LightDM for Xfce and perhaps
even for LXDE, too. I am optimistic this will be in F16.
