Btw, Emacs 22 and before did allow changing quit-char on X, so I
believe the fact that this was disallowed during multi-tty merge is a
bug, or at least something that needs a good explanation.  The ELisp
manual still says that setting quit-char works on X as well, unlike
the `interrupt' argument to `set-input-mode'.

Does anyone know why this was disabled on X (and on other types of
graphic display)?
