How can I tell if I'm running under X in a shell script?  If I'm in X, I
want to start screen:  screen -m -c /my/config/file.  If I'm not under X,
I want to start without the -m.  It's an odd google to find the answer to
this question, so your wisdom is appreicated.

Check for the DISPLAY variable?
