When I used to use fvwm I just had a case statement like so:

case $DISPLAY in
        xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources-1600x1200
        exec fvwm -f ~/.fvwmrc-1600x1200
        xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources-1600x1200
        exec fvwm -f ~/.fvwmrc-1600x1200
        xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources-1024x768
        exec fvwm -f ~/.fvwmrc-1024x768

Etc., etc.

Would if be possible to set up gnome to use the directory name passed
to it?  So far I have been rather gingerly using the same ~/.gnome/
and ~/.enlightenment/ directories at the same time for all my
different X servers with few problems, but it would be nice have
custom setups for the big monitors, and color stingy ones for the
8-bpp ones etc. etc.  (Always logging on as the same user is important
to my setup so using different accounts for each would be an extremely
unpleasant compromise.)
