As requested [1] a separate thread for suggesting improvements to xinit,
in order to solve some of the issues people have been having since the
release of 1.3.4-1 [2].

1. Handling of empty .startxwinrc
Given the new behaviour of startxwin having an empty is never a correct
configuration. It would be really nice if startxwin could check for a
zero length .startxwinrc and in that case just start the X server
without any programs, as it used to do in 1.3.2-1. This would solve a
problem reported several times [3, 4] and also solve the problem of
having an icon on the task bar for 'sleep inf' [5].

And what if it's not zero-length but still blank?

I could have startxwin check if ~/.startxwinrc is executable, and skip if it not, which might also cover many of these empty .startxwinrc's. OTOH all that might accomplish is trade the "why won't it start" for "why doesn't it respect my config". :-)
