and emacs -q it turns out work... unless one wants to use a different
font! Then one needs -mm.
Is there any way to put the -mm into .emacs? or does one need a shell wrapper?

The documentation for emacs and elisp is in info. It can be confusing that some parts are in the Emacs node and some in the Elisp node. This particular documentation is in the Elisp node: In Emacs:
C-h i m elisp<return> s maximized <return>

I.e. the frame parameter fullscreen can have the value maximized.

emacs-version "23.1.91.1"
Anyway, my point still remains, the user's first encounter with
$ emacs # just won't fit on many people's screens.
At least under icewm. I don't know any other program that acts like that
right out of the box.

That is indeed a bad thing to do. I added some code to address that. Note that any tool bars put there by the window manager must be handeled by the window manager. For example, compiz will never let me create a window so high it covers the menu/toolbars added by Gnome-panel.
