Hi Harry. This has no effect -- the daemon starts without any errors
and the graphical client won't start. Commenting stuff out of .emacs
I've found I can start the graphical client without a color theme, or
if I do this:

(defmacro Xlaunch (&rest x)
  (list 'if (eq window-system 'x) (cons 'progn x)))
(require 'color-theme)
(if (Xlaunch)

Which works but I get no color theme -- of course when the daemon
starts Xlaunch is false. Is there some way to say "do this if the
current client uses X"?
