The Zap feature to kill X server.  It was disabled upstream.  Cascaded
to OLPC OS in in 11.3.0.  Raised as #11202 [1], as a regression, but
not resolved.

It can be easily restored [2], and some deployments have done that.

The other functions you desire can be implemented by replacing olpc-dm
with gdm, and removing olpc-switch-desktop.  See devel@ archives
around 17th March, subject "Boot Menu for XO" [3].

See also sugar-devel@ around 14th April, subject "Sugar 0.102 testing
images (34002)" for a discussion about an issue that appears when
using gdm [4].
