If emacs had a way to start it unmapped like xemacs, this probably would
not be hard at all.  if emacs was not already up, we could fork it in
the background and then use gnuserv to send it a create-frame call with
a GtkSocket id to draw to.

there was a gnomacs project a couple of years ago that showed something
like this.  the only problem is that it required an already running
emacs to create the frame.

i've looked into the source of gnomacs some on and off and i've also
looked a the gtk emacs port some to see how hard it would be.  actually
embedding the frame does not look hard at all.

native d-bus support for evaluating lisp commands would make
communicating with the running emacs process much easier.
