FWIW, under OS X the user consensus was that the semantics of -q/Q implied
that user customizations should not be loaded even if they come from the
resource database instead of .emacs.  Thus, there is the "ns_no_defaults"
hack in emacs.c.  It would be easier to do this cleanly if other platforms
choose to implement it as well.
