I didn't say they like this.  In fact, I didn't talk about server at
all.  I was talking about how to start _Emacs_, not the server, and I
was talking about making it harder for users to share the same .emacs
file between different OSes.

In particular, a .emacs that starts the server will do the wrong thing
with Lennart's binaries.  And .emacs that does not start the server
will give you a server on Windows if you use Lennart's binaries, but
on other systems the server will not start.
