Suppose you're using Solaris' CDE as your gui; what's a
reasonable choice, given that.

(CDE suits me just fine, for what little I need from
a gui, so am not currently eager to switch to a different
gui -- if this sentence has anything to do with running
emacs at all; maybe it doesn't, all that counts being
that somewhere down there is an X11, and there is.)
