When automatically logging in there is no visual indication an autologin is about to occur and no way to cancel it.

The solution I have gone for is:
- If the selected user is the autologin one then
- Show the login button as "Log In In x Seconds"
- Animate that every second, and log in when the timer reaches zero
- If the selected user is changed (by mouse click or arrow keys) then the timer is cancelled.

no longer affects: unity-greeter

What do you mean "no longer affects: unity-greeter"?

Bugs were assigned to both the unity-greeter project and the unity-greeter package. We now only track bugs in the unity-greeter package (since there's no need to duplicate bugs). This is because Launchpad was not really designed for developing projects inside Ubuntu (see bug 76416).
