That's a good news, gdm can now be replaced :)

Ubuntu uses upstart scripts for some packages, not all, init script
still works. Upstart have the advantage to work with upstart scripts and
normal init scripts.
However, init scripts will be converted to upstart scripts soon. Ubuntu
is not the only distro to provide upstart. Fedora is also using upstart
and I'm sure they will switch to upstart scripts soon too. Debian will
also switch to upstart instead of init.
I don't know if Andrew Lee plan to package lxdm for Debian soon, I'll be
happy to help or wait for his work for Ubuntu, as a display manager is
not the most trivial package to do :)
