I haven't followed this and cannot check the new effect. But I hope this does
not mean that a user's customizations of, say, `default-frame-alist' will no
longer be respected wrt `menu-bar-lines' and `tool-bar-lines'.
When you say "use X resources", do you mean that Emacs now sets X resources or
only that users can use X resources to set these parameters? (You say "use X
resources" the same way you say "don't add entries", so it's unclear what the
subject of the sentence is: Emacs code or the user.)
FWIW: Over the past few major releases there has been considerable fiddling with
initial menu-bar and tool-bar settings and how they're established. I hope this
will settle down and reach a fixed point. ;-) As an example, I have code that
fits the frame to a buffer, and it has to calculate the frame height differently
for different Emacs versions, because of the different treatment of these
