Thanks very much, Peter. I will experiment with this. By the way, I use
command line emacs fairly often as I am frequently SSH'ed to my Mac at
home from my laptop.

I had not heard of the .emacs_<shell's name> initialization file
before. That would certainly be worth exploiting to managed
platform-specific handling, etc.

Thank you.
