Apparently Debian's "X session" is heavily customized, as described in

Arch's customizations are different and don't appear to be the same
as Debian's.

What I was missing was a simple pointer from lightdm's joke of a man page
to either Xsession(5), with some indication that lightdm *runs* a Debian
X session, or directly to the debian-reference web page.

At some point I may take a stab at fixing up the wiki page(s) now that
we have some actual, useful information.  (I should also point out that
my Google searches for "debian man lightdm" etc. tended to favor the
Debian wiki page, which at this precise moment is just about as useless
as the lightdm man page is.)
