But this is neiher a lisp var or env var...

What other "flags" do we currently have in Emacs which

a) could be controlled via a lisp variable or function, but
b) can only be controlled via X resources, and
c) cannot be turned on again, once it has been turned off.

In my experience, very few users are familiar with X resources.
So at least we should include an example how to do this at the
proper place in PROBLEMS, e.g.

For example, you can use the option ``-xrm "useXIM: false"'' when
you start emacs.
