Question: would this stuff make any difference unless Emacs was called
in a special way?  Is there some protocol advertising the possibility
for embedding that might be used by window managers or other
applications to check for embeddability?

If all of this is not the case, then the respective code paths would
basically just get exercised when one explicitly does something that
one could not do before.  If there are just a few such code spaces,
the impact on the general release quality would be negligible.

How hard will it be to integrate those patches (or the respective
functionality) after the release?  Would it make sense to integrate
them already in the multi-tty branch, or should we rather store them
somewhere separately after the release?  Separate branch?

Does this make sense?  Or would the authors of this patch prefer to
try their hand again from a clean head after release?
