You know very well, Eli, that we have discussed if Emacs server should
be started automatically when Emacs client is invoked. I have offered
the code that does so, but you are one of those that did not want that
code to be in Emacs at the moment.

I'm obviously not Eli, but I think there were good reasons for not
wanting the code in Emacs at the present. For one, althought I like
the functionality, I think it could benefit from some more discussion;
also, I don't like the implementation.

I think it is one of the important features in the patched version that
makes it quite a bit easier to get started using Emacs for new users.

I don't think "quite a bit easier" is a fair description. We're
talking of the difficulty of starting Emacs as a server before using
emacsclient. Hardly rocket science.

Not one single of the new users have complained about this.

Users who enter Emacs through your distribution don't know it is
currently supposed to be different. Why should they complain, unless
it causes problems (which is not the same that being better, of
course)? And I seem to remember at least a few bug reports...
