I'm interested in using LightDM guest sessions in Debian. I've noticed that
there are some missing scripts needed to enable guest logins. They are
found in Ubuntu/upstream's debian folder (but you can provide your own
alternative as well):

* guest-account.sh (installed as /usr/sbin/guest-account)

* lightdm-guest-session-auto.sh (installed in /usr/lib/lightdm)

Moreover, AppArmor must be installed if you want to apply default
restrictions for guest sessions.

I'm currently colaborating with upstream to improve guest-account scripts,
eventually turning them cross-distro.

Do you have an official position about supporting LightDM guest logins in
Debian? openSUSE guys, for example, don't support it.
