lightdm uses default.desktop as fallback. That one could be manged by
update-alternatives.

Another .desktop file in /usr/share/xsession? Pollutes the drop down
selection of any DM that has a session picker... I vote against it

That can be fixed easily by looking at the file and if it's a symlink with
target in the same directory, skip it. Needs to be implemented in the major
DMs at least, so gdm, lightdm and sddm.

I implemented it this way and for Xfce/LXQt/Plasma/IceWM and enlightenment in a
home branch: https://build.opensuse.org/project/monitor/home:favogt:autologin

Please test and review before I make submit requests.

I made patches for sddm and lightdm, but am not familiar with gdm at all. I
didn't add a default.desktop for GNOME because it doesn't work with anything
other than GDM anyway (or did that get fixed meanwhile?)

WMs like IceWM have a default priority of 15, small desktops like LXQt, Xfce
and enlightenment 20 and the two big ones GNOME and KDE Plasma have the highest
priority of 25.
