Thanks! That website gave me the syntax I needed. All I had to do was
make /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf look like this:

[greeter]
Exclude=myuser

All that talk of schemas had me confused. I think I must speak a
different language than the Gnome developers...

That remebembers me... there used to be a GUI app to handle that (in gdm
2.x) that one could launch with "gksu /usr/sbin/gdmsetup" but the same
app under gdm3 lacks for many of its features (in fact, it's pretty
minimal).

Which remembers me - When I was doing a bit of a search last night I
came across comments to the effect that gdm-setup(?) functionality
"will" become part of the new Gnome shell.

...and my claim to know nothing of Gnome is not entirely correct - I am
given to understand that it's some sort of a mouse house that you get if
you install the stock Debian using the Enter key ;-p

Scott,

That's not fair. :-(

Yes, to which I would add that even though Scott's command of the
English language is far superior, or so I am given to understand, as
the only people I know who use such phrases as "I am given to
understand" are scholars or pretentious or both, however the OP can
take solace in the fact that he was able to more clearly communicate
his meaning, despite his apparent disadvantage to the learned scholar
Scott, whose "mouse house" comments remain a mystery to me.

Ugh... that would be an ugly approach ;-(

Can you expand that information?

Accessible/configurable from is what I should have written....

Not really, what I vaguely recall is that system configurations will
become(/be set from) an extension in gnome shell, gdm included. I
assumed that to mean that the daemon.conf would become
configurable/accessible through the shell.

Came across the following in an attempt to track down where I read that.
Don't know if this is relevant:-

Scroll down for the reference to Bug #587750

Mmm... I'm not planning to move into gnome shell (still) so having to
switch into that just to get more "accessibility" or "higher levels of
configurability" would be a big handicap.

Thanks... that gnome bug (#587750) seems to be key:

***
GDM rewrite needs a configuration GUI panel similar to 2.20 (gdmsetup)
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=587750
***

Fortunately, there is no mention for binding "gdmsetup" within gnome
shell :-)
