In my /home/mythtv directory, I have the following:

dell ~ 20:00 mythtv $ cat .Xclients-default
#! /bin/bash
# Created by Red Hat Desktop Switcher

WMPATH="/usr/bin /opt/bin /usr/local/bin /usr/X11R6/bin"

for p in $WMPATH ; do
         [ -x $p/$WM ] && exec $p/$WM

exit 1

So maybe you could doctor the WM= and WMPATH= variables to use ratpoison
