Why don't you use

:0 local@tty1 /usr/X11R6/bin/X :0 -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp vt7
:1 local reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :1 -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp vt8
:2 local reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :2 -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp vt9
:3 local reserve /usr/X11R6/bin/X :3 -dpi 100 -nolisten tcp vt10

This start Xserver on vt8...vt10 when needed.  With these 'reserved'
entries K-menu and screen saver have a new 'Start new session' entry
that start x-server on vt8 then vt9 ...

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
