Just saw this in the TODO of emacscvs. 
| * Add a --pristine startup flag which does -q --no-site-file plus
|   ignoring X resources (Doze equivalents?) and most of the
|   environment.  What should not be ignored needs consideration.

Can we either change this to -vanilla, or else alias -vanilla to

In xemacs, -vanilla is exactly equivalent to -q -no-site-file, so if
our --pristine turns out to do something different, then we should
have a -vanilla that is exactly -q -no-site-file

the reason I think we should have a -vanilla is not just for xemacs
consistency, but also emacs -q --no-site-file is too much of a
mouthful, especially when telling newbies about it, and not easy for
them to remember either.

PS: Is there a good way to search for emacs-devel archives (other than
loading each one in the browser in turn and doing a search-forward?),
so i can check for similar topics before posting, to avoid duplicates?
