I have one question. How is it that a plain 'xterm' call prompts
to start X11 while xterm with DISPLAY set to :0 does not?
Ooh, I think I know the answer to this one! I believe it's because
launchd only understands the /tmp/launchd-xxxxx/:0 socket.
Close enough. Launchd is the one that actually creates and listens on
the /tmp/launchd-xxxx/:0 socket -- when something touches that socket,
then launchd starts X11.app, as dictated by the LaunchAgent plist.
So, if you don't touch that socket, launchd never gets involved.
