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:
# 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.
