Haha :) No, it's just that, as far as I can see, the impact on newbies
is that we tell them to reboot instead of doing ctrl-alt-backspace.
Total cost: about twenty seconds (time to reboot vs. time to restart X).
Killing X kills all X apps in any case, so they're not going to lose any
data rebooting that they wouldn't have lost anyway by doing
ctrl-alt-backspace. Or are our newbies running emacs in virtual consoles
now?
