  | If you want to implement a solution like that for X app-defaults files,
  | go for it - but the way to be like this would be to add something new
  | in /etc/X11/XF86Config (and then work out how to get something similar
  | for those other X servers that don't have a config file).

was, of course, nonsense, as it is the applications, not the server, that
need the app-defaults files.   But a config file in some well known place
(probably in /etc/X11, since it exists) that could set system-wide application
defaults would be a (non-trivial) reasonable solution.
