I see.

So I took a look at the manual. The manual for some reason is focused
on unix:    
"As an alternative to using `emacsclient', the file `etc/emacs.bash'
defines a Bash command `edit' which will communicate with a running
Emacs session, or start one if none exist."

Afaics this is similar to what Lennart does for w32, but I may be
wrong. 
To me this indicates that there might be a reason for making something
easier for windows people, too. 

In my experience emacsW32 is a very nice customization for my use of
emacs and it is easier for me to make our students get going with
emacs.
