Bug Description

For LightDM to be used in embedded systems/set-top box like environment the session needs to be restarted automatically if terminated (for example by a crash).
Please provide (optional) support for this scenario.

Suggested solution - add autologin-always option so quitting the session restarts instead of starting a greeter.

I would really like to see the 'autologin-always' option implemented. It's very useful for embedded/set-top systems that don't have a keyboard/mouse connected.

Currently I'm using KDM with it's 'AutoLoginAgain' option but would prefer to use LightDM as it's much lighter on the dependencies/resources.
