Autologin greeter using LightDM

lightdm-autologin-greeter is a minimal greeter for LightDM that has the same autologin behavior as nodm, but being based on LightDM, it stays on top of modern display manager requirements. The difference between LightDM's built-in autologin and this greeter, is the behavior in case of 0-seconds autologin delay. When LightDM automatically logs in with no delay, upon logout it will show the login window again. The intent is that if the default user logged out, they probably intend to log in again as a different user. In the case of managing a kiosk-like setup, if the X session quits, then the desired behavior is to just start it again. LightDM with an autologin timeout of 1 or more seconds would work, but one sees the login dialog window appear and disappear on-screen at each system startup. With this greeter, the X session starts right away, and is restarted if it quits, without any flicker of a login dialog box. If one is not setting up a kiosk-like setup, it's very likely that the default autologin behavior of LightDM is the way to go, and that this greeter is not needed.
