What's the normal usage?

If the most common usage is the headless stuff then it should default 0.

This is always a judgement call. One thing to note: if if has been 0,
and you change it 1, you are going to have to tell any users of
headless that they need to make  new target with this set to 0.

How will the unconditional inclusion of the vga.o (from the other
thread) affect headless users? It still seems to me that it would be
easy to say
        object vga.o

to cover that case.
