In some ways.

Unless you're running a pure standalone system it's a good idea to
have both.  The only tricky bit about that is conditionalizing the
startup files, in case you want the environment to be different for
the two cases.

Which leads me to a new question: is there a variable or function
which identifies the carbon build?  At the moment I'm using 

 (fboundp 'do-applescript)

which really feels like hack.  Is there a cleaner check?
