xterm launch with X11 all the time

There's an app that's always started along with X11, but you can change it from xterm to something that will be invisible and go away immediately:

In Terminal, run
defaults write org.x.X11 app_to_run /usr/bin/true

The waitress asked, "Do you want lemon or no lemon with that iced tea?"
Naturally, I said "yes", and then burst out laughing, because there simply
wasn't any other answer in Boolean logic.  She didn't get it, but I got
the lemon, which I wanted anyway.  Later, I realized a quantum computer
could have offered another answer: Schroedinger's Lemon!
