Suppose I start X on host slowfox, then start an xterm here.  Within
the xterm, I do `telnet frumple'.  Frumple is a remote host which
doesn't have X installed at all.  On frumple, I say `emacs'.  How is
that Emacs supposed to read the X resources used by the xterm running
on slowfox?

But maybe by `treating as a local xterm session' you mean that Emacs
tries to read the X resources and falls back to a reasonable default
when that fails, then the fallback will surely work fine for Emacs
running on frumple.

I like BOTH kinds of music.
