What would it take to make `emacs-dump' work in non-batch mode?   Even if 
it would take a few seconds to dump emacs when closing the session, 
getting back your old Emacs when you start the session again would make 
that up, at least for me.  I can see that network connections, including 
X11, probably needs some thinking.
