    Well, I'll just point out that not only do 99.9% of X installations run
    on local machines and need that line, but also 95% of the users using
    those X installations will have no idea that the Xservers file needs
    to be modified or even what an 'Xservers' file is!  So just about anyone
    who is not otherwise told about having to modify the file will believe
    that xdm is broken.
