Here's my advice: it would be a better use of your time to install xinit
and accustom yourself to the wonders of X rather than hopelessly trying
to find a way to continue living in the past.

Using X requires user intervention to start an X server first.  No
amount of automatic dependencies will change this, and therefore I don't
expect that the number of questions would change one iota.

But if TK needs an X server started in must be a installed and is a
dependency of TK to have X server.  Yes, one has to start it but why
not require the dependency so that the X server software exists to use
already?  I agree with Matt, I'm not getting the angst for adding the
X server as a dependency for TK which requires it.  Having to start it
is a different matter.
