It doesn't, which makes me wonder how much hacking went into
emacsclient.c, or maybe it will also start failing once the server
side is working.

Giving server.el a fallback of opening a TCP socket on localhost is
probably good enough. Unix-like systems will support AF_LOCAL, and
MS-Windows systems do not need to worry so much about multiple users,
so the security implications are mitigated.

I'm not sure that server sockets are stable on MS-Windows, but
getting server.el going will be a good test.
