As already pointed out, there'ss already a MESSAGE.

There are 108 packages whose PLIST matches lib/X11/app-defaults/.
Most of them are ancient things unlikely to get major updates from
upstream, so patching them isn't necessarily infeasible or reckless.

However, I thought of what might be a better way... is there an Xt
call that can load an app-defaults file such that the resources get
handled with the right search priority? Because if so, we can probably
solve the whole problem with some shared library hacks.
