Bug#237877: should xdm still force a dpi 100 by default?

Package: xdm
Subject: should xdm still force a dpi 100 by default?
Version: 4.3.0-5
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch sid

xdm's Xserver file overrides all DPI settings with 100. The old Netscape font
HOWTO recommended that the Xserver's DPI be set to 100 to get bigger
fonts, but with the recent changes to XFree's font handling, that
shouldn't be needed anymore.

If you agree, please apply the attached patch. If not, please explain
why here and close this wishlist bug.
