Setting up the virtual terminal appearance on a box with Arch and urxvt, I find myself unable to display which X resources are in use in a particular VT instance.

~/.Xresourcesthen update this VT with
- Open another VT, load a different setting, and repeat so to compare between them.
- Phone rings, time to eat or look upon some kid...
- Come back to the computer: Oow, what was the X resources settings in VT 1, 2 or N already?

As you might see,
xrdb will show X resources loaded by the VT at a moment, but not per VT instance. Same for
xorg-appres. Here's a wider screenshot with more instances and different settings loaded
Is there a way to show up X resources loaded in a particular VT instance that you know of?
PS: My question slightly differs from the otherwise very informative How can I find the default (font) resource XTerm is using? ‒ 2013
