Re: X-windows and emacspeak

Emacspeak does not strictly require X, but RealPlayer does; if you
want to use realaudio, you need to keep the X libs that it needs.

For other reasons (such as detecting that RealPlayer has expired and
you have to get another) it is a good idea to keep a minimal X server
on your machine, but you needn't install the full KDE or Gnome
desktop, just the basic XFree86 and a simple window manager (sawfish
is good).  There is also emerging support for screenreaders for X, and
someday we may actually have some good useful GUI apps.
