Not -Q; what is actually used is more relevant.  I did just try -q -nox
though on the workstation.  That reduces the startup VM to 270M, for a
more fair comparison to what I run on the servers.  (I don't copy my
main .emacs over to them; they have radically different needs.)

On GUI systems, but the point was to keep the ram and disk footprints
small -- or at least no larger then they already are -- on headless
systems, which wouldn't have anything else linking in glib.

The datapoint is welcome.
