What patch would you be adding against xdm, exactly, since xdm already
knows how to do this quite well on its own?

Well, it doesn't do anything silly like /etc/X11/Xreset.d, but it does
support Xreset and has pretty much forever.  The fact that Debian doesn't
ship one just means that you get to create one.

See xdm(1).
