You can't completely disable user-switching in new-gdm

Starting with new-gdm (2.25.2+), you can't completely disable user-switching. It appears that indicator-applet-session (the replacement for f-u-s-a) does honor /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_user_switching, however the GNOME "Log Out" panel button does not honor that. (source-diving indicates that you should be able to set /desktop/gnome/lockdown/disable_log_out to prevent that button from being used, but it didn't work for me in testing).

We work around this for cluster-login-config by transforming /etc/dbus-1/system.d/gdm.conf and disabling some dbus messages, but we should research this a bit more and encourage upstream to suck less.
