Mm, for the example I gave (aterm -xrm "*Page: 0 1 1"), it works fine for 
me. But I tried setting other resources and it doesn't seem to work. I 
must admit that I was surprised that just adding the line the patch does 
worked (for my purpose, at least). So I guess it's not complete then. I 
wonder why it works for "*Page x x x" (at least, with fvwm). How is the 
information passed? After a quick look at the source code, my guess is 
that it is passed to the window manager through the call XSetWMProperties 
in main.c:Create_Windows, since xdefaults.c:get_options doesn't seem to do 
much aside from parsing.

Ah well, it was too good to be true :) Never mind then. I will simply 
patch my version and one day, if I have time, I will try a full 
implementation of -xrm.
