Summary:                    Doesn't leverage /usr/dt/bin/Xsession (thus misses
out on Xsession.d for example)
3rd party window managers (like window maker) can integrate
/usr/dt/bin/Xsession into their startup files. This way, sysadmin
facilities like a global /etc/dt/config/Xsession.d directory with hook
scripts which are called on session startup become available.

The windowmaker_dtlogin package doesn't do this currently. How about
leveraging Xsession (or at least the Xsession.d sub-part)? For an example
of how this can be done, please see the gnome_dtlogin package. The order in
which the gnome_dtlogin configuration file and scripts are processed is
roughly the following:

* /etc/dt/config/C/Xresources.d/Xresources.CSWgnome (configures dtlogin)
* /etc/dt/config/Xsession.CSWgnome (called by dtlogin, starts Xsession)
* /usr/dt/bin/Xsession
* /etc/dt/config/Xsession2.CSWgnome (called by Xsession via
* /etc/dt/config/Xinitrc.CSWgnome
