I could further confuse the OP and claim that I have this in my
environment:
  export XAPPLRESDIR=${HOME}/.x11resources/
  export XENVIRONMENT=${HOME}/.Xdefaults
and have one file per X application under $XAPPLRESDIR, and a bunch of
includes in the $XENVIRONMENT file for the applications I still use,
just because that is the way I did way back when (and don't actually
call xrdb anymore) but that would be unnecessary :-)

Thanks!

Thanks again. My Elisp is rudimentary.  I used to have a cond in there
instead of the if, with cases for other window systems, but I dropped it
when I recently switched from XEmacs back to Emacs.
