[OS X TeX] Should I install X11 ?

This may *seem* to be OT, but I think it is not. The question is: Is  
it advisable to install X11 on a newly bought MacBookPro just  
received ? (I assume it is not installed by default, searching for  
X11 Spotlight did return just songs).

The reason of my asking it here is because the only interest I would  
have in X11 would be regarding the TeX installation. At some places  
in the documentation and the discussions X11 enters the picture, but  
I don't know whether a *normal* user of (La)TeX+TeXShop would need  
it, or at least benefit from it, or ... ? It seemed to me that having  
it or not makes some difference at the time of installing some of the  
i-packages, but I could not understand whether this meant it was  
recommendable or not.

Thanks in advance,
