Just FYI:, a native OS X replacement for Apple's 
(and available via "port install iTerm2"), supports auto-copying of 
double-clicked selections to the OS X clipboard and has many other 
useful power features and doesn't use X.  Of course, if one *prefers* to 
run under X ... (but if one does, why use OS X on the desktop in the 
first place?).
