True headless StX mode

It would be great to have true headless Stx. Now it is possible to "hide" the windows but that is not the headless mode.

It would be great for server applications to have possibility to run only as daemons or services without any further requirements.

My bad as Jan has explained the Smalltalk/X has true headless mode from the beginning. I'll then improve the wiki to contain this information.

In short:
@linux: run unset DISPLAY before running Smalltalk/X
@windows: at start don't call Smalltalk openDisplay

more later on at wiki.
