Well, many emacs options can potentially confuse users, and I do not
request that creating the text buffer is made the default. Yet emacs
has a lot to do with customization and achieving a goal in the most
efficient way.

Thanks, I'll look into txutils.

However, I spend about half of my time with emacs in a tty and the
other half of my time it is running under X. Many emacs packages
need to behave differently in these different environments. Yet the
advantage is generally that I can use one package in both
environments, and this one package comes with one set of commands,
keybindings, customizations, etc.
