Mystery of xlogin invocation; was Re: "The xlogin widget, ..."

Thanks.  I should have realized that; but the reference to 
"xlogin widget" sounds generic.  It is just another 
program;  the manual could drop the "widget".

"... will be automatically invoked from one of the x server startup script."

cd /etc
find  . -type f -exec grep "xlogin" {} \; -print

reports that limits are set in ./security/limits.conf
and nice details such as 
xlogin*greetColor: Blue3
are set in ./X11/xdm/Xresources.

The invocation itself remains a mystery.  Where, oh 
where is xlogin invoked?

Regards,              ... Peter E.
