framebuffer-enabled replacement for getty

qingy (Qingy Is Not GettY) is a replacement for getty that uses DirectFB to provide a fast, nice GUI without the overhead of the X Window System. It allows the user to log in and start the session of his choice (text console, GNOME, KDE, WMaker, ...).

Main features:

 - It works ;-)
 - It remembers last user who logged in, with focus on password
 - It also rememebers last session each user chose
 - Alternatively it remembers last session on a per-tty basis
 - Fully themable
 - A theme will look the same on all machines, independently of
   the resolution
 - You can select your favourite theme, or a random one every time
 - Both text and X sessions are supported
 - You can start more that one X session at once
 - You can even start X inside a console when X sessions are already
 - PAM support
 - Support for screen savers
 - Auto log-in support
 - Session locking support
 - tty specific options support
 - Customizable key bindings
 - Text mode support.
