Didn't someone write an implementation of emacsclient on w32 using
Named Pipes? Would not that also be preferrable to avoid problems with
firewalls on the local computer?

But what about connecting to servers on other hosts? Or is that
perhaps not something that can be done? Or can that possibility be
kept open by also allowing for using TCP on w32?
