I have a number of .xinitrc versions to start different WMs, like
.xinitrc_fluxbox, .xinitrc_gnome and so on. To switch WM I symlink
.xinitrc to the version I want, and then do a startx from the command

I guess this approach can be extended to symlink WM (and other) config
files to different configurations depending on the value of $DISPLAY.

BTW, an alternativ way to start up an xsession on screen N using
terminal xx is:

startx -- :N vtxx

Personally I don't see much use in starting several WMs at the same
time, but it comes in handy when having to deal with "FreeBSD is not
ready for the desktop"-people. Can you do this on windows? :-)
