Installing this package sets up the xguest user to be used as a temporary
account to switch to or as a kiosk user account.
The user is only allowed to log in via gdm.  The home and temporary directories
of the user will be polyinstantiated and mounted on tmpfs.
WARNING: unlike Fedora, where the account is disabled unless SELinux is in
enforcing mode and where it's only accessible through gdm/kdm/xdm, it's
accessible from the console too.
