Do you have any sources documenting this?  Using 'strace' on xterm I
see that only ~/.Xdefaults and ~/.Xdefaults-$HOSTNAME are opened.

I think I read somewhere that instead of a single file a directory
containing files named for the program could be used.  However, that
didn't seem to work when I tried it.  Does anyone have any pointers to
docs on this?  (I like the directory idea -- easier to manage)
