Shell "kiosk" mode isn't used for additional user accounts

Currently, we simply autostart g-i-s in the user session, which is not quite what the designers had in mind. They'd like to have the same reduced shell mode that we use for the primary user, and only go to a full session when the user exists gnome-initial-setup. This should also allow to apply the language that was selected in g-i-s.
One possibility for this is to a) have new a users session default to gnome-initial-setup b) change the session to 'gnome' at the end of gnome-initial-setup c) restart the user session when gnome-initial-setup is done
the api to restart the session could either be in gnome-session or in gdm
