	Put the command& in /etc/X11/Xsession. But it will run with user
permissions I think. And it can be avoided by users too.
	If you want something which starts with each init 5, you can set
it in /etc/X11/prefdm.
	Or maybe you can write a wrapper for the Xserver which launches
your program after starting X.

	Depends on how clever the user is if he smells something fishy ;-)
