xrandr also takes --dpi to set the resolution. I don't know if you can
directly query the dpi but xrandr does give the screen dimensions and
display mode dimensions so it's easy to calculate dpi from that. I guess
you just need to query it on the client side and set on the server side.

I don't know what you'd do about heterogeneous multi-screen setups
though, my displays are 125dpi and 100dpi.
