i would not think so.  at least i have not made changes to that code in
a good while.

i believe this is the relevant code, from start-lkb():

  (let* ((lui (getenv "LUI"))
         (port (and (stringp lui) (parse-integer lui :junk-allowed t))))
    (when lui (lui-initialize :port port :runtimep runtimep :lui lui)))

so, unless a user sets the environment variable, i would not expect LUI
to be on by default.

in theory, a grammar could include an initialize-lui() call somewhwere
in its collateral files, but i am not aware of such cases (and think we
should discourage such creativity).
