xdm: new window for password?


Hello

Is it possible to customise xdm so that the user name maybe be entered and then the password entry screen activated by pressing Enter?

It's not a big issue but the Enter key is an easier target than the tab key on small keyboards.

According to the xdm man page, xLogin handles authentication and "Nearly every imaginable parameter can be controlled with a resource" but not having a new window for the password!?

Best

Charles
