[Grml] Having a way to set default X session manager

Currently when GRML is installed to HD it creates the user home 
directory with a .xinitrc file with a window manager (looking closer at 
alternatives it seems this really should be called x session manager). 
This makes it impossible for a system wide default window manager to be 
set. I remember that slackware offered a feature where a default system 
window manager could be set and such a feature would be useful in GRML. 
Obviously should a user want to use something other than the default 
then they can do so by running grml-x or manually create the ~/.xinitrc 

Would it be possible to add such a feature?
