More specifically, it tells libXft to use said DPI.  If it exists,
libXft adds that value (a double) to the patterns it sends on to

If it does not exist, libXft uses DisplayHeight * 25.4 / DisplayHeightMM.

I believe it uses those two (prefering the Xft.dpi value) only if the
application hasn't already specified FC_DPI in the fontconfig pattern.
