Removing the top panel or indicators from Lightdm-GTK-Greeter?

Is it possible to remove the top panel of the Lightdm-GTK-Greeter, or the indicators (ex: accessibility)? I want to remove them to make my login screen a little less icon-heavy. I like having a very minimalistic screen, and that would help.

You can patch /usr/share/lightdm-gtk-greeter/greeter.ui. YMMV

Re: Removing the top panel or indicators from Lightdm-GTK-Greeter?

I backed up the greeter.ui file and removed the following from it:

Worked like a charm! I haven't tested it completely yet, but it looks as if it is working and stable! Thanks Stebalien!
