It's certainly worth trying again though -- 

   (1) I think the emacs infrastructure for handling this stuff has been
   changed quite a bit

   (2) IIRC, one of the main complaints was just speed, and machines/etc
   are _much_ faster now (even your slow laptop ... :)

   (3) I've personally had it enabled for years, with zero problems

IMHO, it really does make using emacs in conjunction with other X apps
much nicer (things "just work"), and is clearly what noobs expect.


Road, n. A strip of land along which one may pass from where it is too
tiresome to be to where it is futile to go.
