I'm 99% sure it can only be A-Z. But isalpha() covers a much larger
range of characters anyway, and it certainly can't be punctuation or

This is a bit of a moot point. Deciding whether the name is absolute
or relative in emacsclient just changes whether we add the current
directory path or not. But when doing

 C:\default\path> emacsclient 3:\foo.bar

whether Emacs receives "C:\default\path\3:\foo.bar", or "3:\foo.bar"
is largely irrelevant, because they're invalid paths. anyway.

If anything, it's better to accept "X:\foo.bar" as absolute for
uncommon values of X, in case the user is running some weird network
software which allows non-letter drive names.
