I've gotten some very useful ideas in this thread (thanks Anselm,
Michael, and Giorgios), but this one actually blew me away.  In
all my years using emacs (decades really) I never knew of this
command-line switch.  In fact, after rummaging through the man page
and the emacs docs, I was not able to find it.  But it works like
gangbusters.  Thanks!
