I gave this subject some thought. I'd also like to see Emacs support
multiple window systems in the future, but the way to do that isn't to
include more than one window-system header. Instead, it's to entirely
decouple the core code from the window system entirely, moving
everything necessary into frame.h itself.

The right thing to do in the future is to move to including no
window-system headers at all. I don't think my patch moves us further
from that goal.
