I just launch emacs interactively once, and then on use emacsclient
(or just open from one of the emacs frames).


Of notable interest, when I change of workstation but still want to go
on working in the same emacs session, is:

    laptop$        xhost +maincomputer
    laptop$        ssh -X address@hidden
    maincomputer$  emacsclient --eval "(make-frame-on-display \"$DISPLAY\")"

which will open a frame on the X server in laptop from the emacs
running on maincomputer.  


Since I don't log-out every day, I get usually emacs uptimes as long
as the computer uptimes (ie _months_).  It wouldn't matter if my
.emacs  needed five minutes to load...
