Sure, you can close this if it's a non-bug. From what you write, it
doesn't make sense to make Sugar the
x-session-manager/x-window-manager on a system by default, except
for the fewest cases.

At the moment, lightdm does not give me options over what session to
choose, and I need to figure that out, but as long as I can
configure the default session of individual users to be Sugar, then
that's just fine.
