Re: X11 resource to turn on visible-bell

I find the bell sound very annoying, adding (setq visible-bell t) to
.emacs gets rid of it nicely.
But that does not work when running "emacs -q".
It would be nice to have an X11 resource to use visible-bell.
Xterm has a resource called "visualBell", Emacs could use the same

Would something like this be a good addition to Emacs?

I don't know how visible bell is implemented, but I suspect it has an effect on redisplay, so you should not turn it on if emacs-basic-display (-D) is t.
