GDM eye candy

Bug Description

In my opinion, GDM should "fade in" like xscreensaver already does.
I don't think it would introduce any noticeable login delay, and would of course
look great.
Seeing that usplash -> GDM transition doesn't flicker anymore, a fade in effect
would make things nicer.

status: Unconfirmed → Confirmed

I agree... it would be a great things to see in Feisty. But think it is too late. You could even go so far as having your login fad in and GDM fade out.

Fade in / out like xscreensaver for GDM would be great!

Pretty cool idea.
It could increase the user experience.
But if it would increase startup time, then I vote no.

Doesn't seem a good idea that would slow loading for no good reason
