How to autologin a specified user with xdm?

I know it's possible with other display managers but I wasn't able to figure out how xdm has to be configured to autologin a certain user.

Is it possible? Or should I rather remove xdm and simply use an initscript with startx?


I haven't used xdm in a long while but as far as I know autologin is not supported by xdm (and, as per one of the devs, not needed).
