The basic idea of the "emergency escape" feature is to provide a way
to get out of Emacs when it is not responding at all.

This is not needed on a window system, because you can make yourself
an xterm or whatever even if Emacs is not listening to you.  And you
could use the xterm to kill Emacs if that is what you want to do.

What did you wish to do using emergency escape under a window system?

    The idea sounds good, assuming you don't mean it to be specific to `write'.

The idea I had in mind is specific to e_write.  It is not needed for anything
else.  Most parts of Emacs will quit *very soon* if you type C-g.
