  (command-line): Set `inhibit-x-resources' instead.
  (command-line-1): Use `inhibit-x-resources' instead.

* src/emacs.c (inhibit_x_resources): New variable.
  (main) [HAVE_NS]: Don't process --quick command line option.
  (syms_of_emacs) <inhibit-x-resources>: DEFVAR_BOOL it.

* src/lisp.h (inhibit_x_resources): Declare it extern.

* src/w32reg.c (x_get_string_resource):

* Changes in Emacs 23.2
** Command-line option -Q (--quick) now also disables loading X resources.
On Windows, Registry settings are ignored, though environment variables set
on the Registry are still honored. The new variable `inhibit-x-resources'
shows whether X resources were loaded or not.
** New completion-style `initials' to complete M-x lch to list-command-history.
** Unibyte sessions are declared obsolete.
