TDE naming inconsistencies and kdm-trinity

Some of you may know of "smxi" which is a set of administration
scripts for Debian going back a number of years. Originating from the
sidux project,  smxi is well-known and repected among Debian
(particularly testing/sid) users.

I recently requested on smxi forum

for kdm-trinity to be added to the list of supported display managers.
The scripts autodetect the default DM so it can stop/start it when

The admin was happy to do so, however it did not work as expected
because of TDE naming inconsistencies and the DM executable being in
other than /usr/bin

$ which kdm

$ ls /etc/init.d | grep kdm

$ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager

I would like to draw attention to this, as I am sure TDE would be more
widely accepted if more general standards were followed (however, I
know the team is already working in this area)
