The TeXmacs preference windows has separate categories
"Look And Feel" and "Interactive Questions." One could thus change
the default for Interactive Questions but not for Look and Feel.

I personally want emacs compatibility for control sequences
but I think an interactive question should be a popup window.
The first reason, as I stated previously, that a query to the
foot line in TeXmacs is extremely easy not to notice. This is
not the case in Emacs.

A second reason is that in TeXmacs, you often have the mouse
already in hand when the query appears, for example, after
exporting a latex file. So a justification that would be
valid in emacs - that one does not one to have to touch the
mouse when one is already at the keyboard - is not so valid
in texmacs.
