How about adding the following to the alternatives system:

update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/x-session-manager \
	x-session-manager /usr/bin/x-window-manager 0 \
	--slave /usr/share/man/man1/x-session-manager.1.gz \
	x-session-manager.1.gz /usr/man/man1/x-window-manager.1.gz

Then you could easily override any session manager by specifying
"update-alternatives --config x-session-manager" and selection
