Motif adopted the convention of prefixing all their resources with
XmN instead of XtN.  Why?  It makes some small amount of sense to not
pollute the Xt name space.  Unfortunately it is not really practical
because it means every widget set would have to define all the
resources, including ones defined by the Intrinsics.  Very messy.  But
heh, OSF is its own world, right?
