Indeed.  This is Emacs, not XEmacs: -Q does not mean "bare bones", it
means "without loading any customization files".

This is already available, it's called "--color=never".  Although I
don't understand why you think it will load faster than the default
version.  Care to explain? or is this again based on your experience
with XEmacs?

Which ones?

It's only self-documenting if one reads documentation.  But if one
does read documentation, then one would have known about a no less
self-documenting option "--color".
