Okay, I think I see a problem here. At the time that early-init.el
runs, "window-system" is set to nil.

I need to condition my init on whether I'm running under X, on a
terminal, or under cocoa ("ns"), so I need to know the value of
window-system when setting things in my init file. (I use a single
init file on many different machines for sanity's sake.)

What should I be doing here? It appears that early-init.el is _too_
