This is certainly possible, but all that is going to happen is that 
weston-launch will have to pass the switch. And then we will have to 
tell people they must provide the switch to weston-launch.

I think changing the name at the lowest level as I did it is the correct 
solution. I see no way anybody can use this unless they can tell the x 
server to ignore any existing xorg.conf file. Changing it at the final 
program seems much cleaner than requiring every wrapping program to pass 
a --config switch.
