That's a good point.  I leave X11 running all the time because I use
several applications that call for it.  However, I should have been
more specific and said "disk footprint."  I've got an old iMac with a
4GB drive and the Carbon Emacs install just takes up more space than I
can afford.

I can't get it to work for whatever reason.  Not a big deal.  I have a
two button mouse with scroll wheel, and X11 Emacs does accept clicking
for scroll wheel for the middle mouse button, which is more important
to me.
