Interesting idea, but 

man Xsession contains:
"       $HOME/.Xsession
              is  a sequence of commands invoking X clients (or a session man-
              ager such as xsm(1x)).  See the manual  page  for  xinit  and/or
              /usr/share/doc/x11-common/examples/xsession  for tips on writing
              an .Xsession file.
and man xinit does not contain either the string 'xs' or 'Xs' so no info there,
and /usr/share/doc/x11-common/examples/ does not exits, so no info there.

This appears to me to be a bug in the documentation. Where should this page 
point for examples?
