I solved another show-stopper:

# >    So how do I make the X server's zooming functional again?

Tracing all the scripts that are started with startxfce4 it became
apparent that /usr/X11R6/etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc in an attempt to be
helpful ran 'xmodmap $HOME/.Xmodmap' and I had that file lying
around from the XFree86 days when they made the '<' and '>' keys
unfunctional on a de-keyboard layout. Moving that file out of
the way makes zooming functional.

So there remains one issue left:

# I don't know that this is possible.

Any takers?
