xorg-x11-xinit-1.0.9-14, in Fedora 12 anyway.

'yum provides' is your friend...

I can't write the docs for something I don't understand, and I'm too
busy trying (and presently failing) to track down bugs in X, the kernel
and KDE to spend time documenting this right now, particularly since it
seems to be mostly GNOMEish, and GNOME and I get on like oil and water.

At some point I also have to track down the PA client lib bug which is
still causing me frequent hangs...
