I believe there are some shortcomings of this approach compared to
.xinitrc  which i use on my desktop documented here

a) If frontend crashes, it will not respawn the frontend again. Also, if
i do an 'Exit Mythtv' in the frontend, it will not restart the frontend.
b) I have  autologin-user=pi set in /etc/lightdm.conf so on first-boot
it autologs me in. However, if X dies (say killall Xorg), then it doesnt
autologin instead shows up the login/passwd input box.

It is not idiot proof yet :)

Any comments?
