Hmm. The trouble is, I want something to override all Registry
settings, precisely when I'm in window mode. So I can test some bug,
for example, without my Emacs.Background, Emacs.Foreground and
Emacs.Geometry settings getting in the way.

That works, but it is awfully ugly if you have many Registry settings.
I'd like a simple way to just say "no Registry settings AT ALL". I can
workaround now by running Emacs with a script doing

  emacs -Q -xrm Emacs.Geometry: -xrm Emacs.Foreground: -xrm Emacs.Background:

but it is a PITA.
