It is certainly possible by installing small shell program named
"dummy-x-session-manager" whose sole content is "exec x-window-manager"
and registering with alternative system under "x-session-manager".

Personally, I like the other method I described in my bug report which
is to have simple entry in "Xsession.options" like:
    # /etc/X11/Xsession.options
    # configuration options for /etc/X11/Xsession
    # See Xsession.options(5) for an explanation of the available options.
    # Default enabled
    # Default disabled (enable them by uncommenting)

If anything else comes out, we need to centralize them here.

This is more natural since we do not lie about x-session-manager.
x-window-manager is not x-session-manager after all.
