This will worn on UNIX like OS's. Does this work on Windoze box (where there
is no concept of X)? 
Maybe, you need a combination of the two.
I check the symbol to check if running under X: (boundp 'x-resource-name)
Since, even on MS-Windows, you could have a CYGWIN build using XFree86
server. I have not tried it on CYGWIN though.
