Nice! I really like your setup and I have a laptop in the basement I
intend to try this on.

The problem is that most of my main laptops are not single-user. My
main home laptop I share with my wife, and my work computer I "share"
with my official domain login.

The idea that I like the most is the udev rule so you don't have to
make Xorg +s. It should be doable with just a group, so I could add my
wife and I to a group that could run Xorg.
