/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit isn't the wrapper, /usr/X11R6/bin/X is. xinit and/or
xdm both invoke that to start the X server, which in turn digs around in
/etc/X11/Xserver to find out (a) who may run it and (b) what the correct X
server to run is.
Incidentally, why does /usr/bin/X11, which the X and FHS folks (if I recall
correctly) deprecated, seem to be making a resurgence in Debian?

I'd rather not see /dev/sunmouse disappear, because there may be things
unbeknownst to both of us that refer to it directly.
