Isn't the opposite the case?  When "emacs_dir" is not set it is
automatically replaced with a generated value.  I had to remove it to
be able to switch between production and development versions easily.

The other pseudo-variables still make sense.  Or are they replaced by
Windows-specific initializations in the Emacs code itself by now?
(Note that I am not saying that I would like that, just that I didn't
investigate if it was the case.)

I think we should keep in mind that sockets do tend to cause grief
with personal firewalls.  Mailslots are not portable but they are in
effect more user-friendly and so reduce the need for support.
