Frames? You mean like web pages had in the 90s?

This must be the cleanest, compile Emacs without X, use
xsel.el [1] to communicate from Emacs to X, and from X to
Emacs (it is a theoretical possibility not observed in the
wild), _and_ from Emacs to the other ttys - without passing X,
which still has to run for it to work.

Remember the SEGA slogan - "Beat us. If you can"

Same then. As now.

BTW xclip.el was written by Leo Liu ... I'll CC him.
Probably a cool guy. Developer.
