I don't think this is possible. I've never come across this "feature" in any of the various xDM's.

Personally I think it's a bad idea to start with, but that's just me.

write a module for it if you really want it.

If I remember correctly, there is code implemented for this already, either in Gnome or KDE.

Vista has something like this, where you can click on an icon with a graphic (that might jog your memory) to get to the field where a password is entered.

Vista also has a password hint button that appears if you make an error during login.

I guess this must be in KDE...?

I'm sceptical towards password hints.
