oh great, we talked so much about how one could
# emacsclient file
from a root window, and it would find your personal [non root] emacs
and you can edit the file there, but now that i actually try it here
in emacs 21.1, sure it found my emacs and i can edit the file, but i
don't get any of root's magical powers, so what's the point of that?

for extra excitement do
# chmod 600 file
# emacsclient file

notice how it like, hangs, whilst in the main emacs
"error in process filter: byte-code: File is not readable: file"
with no buffer to do the C-x # in.

well, why don't you tell emacsclient to exit back to the shell then,
in the meantime, and also figure out how to give me the magical powers.
