On Linux, at least, this doesn't matter unless you have a braille display that
you want to use in parallel with Emacspeak, in which case you have to run it
as an ncurses (console) application, because the GTK version doesn't support
ATK.

Emacspeak will of course operate perfectly well regardless of how Emacs
presents its visual interface.

I expect the above to hold under other operating systems as well.
