General Unix Would you be able to survive one full day without using the X server? Linux offers us a wide assortment of CLI based tools which use curses and/or framebuffer for functional user interfaces. There is no reason why you shouldn't be able look up stuff online, read your email, look at pictures, watch movies and listen to music as you are trying to configure X.

"But I am using mutt at a couple of client sites, where I need an easily scriptable way to send mail as an smtp client rather than server, since the IP address of the machines in question would be filtered by many mail servers on the Internet at large. "

WHat exactly does "as a client" mean here? If it means "using the ISP's mail relay" you could just use any mta (sendmail, postfix , whatever), have it always use the ISP relay and just use mail/mailx.
