You don't need to register the port -- there are numerous well-known
but unregistered ports used everywhere.  And this port is only going
to be used locally -- not critical at all.

If you need to make it configurable, use a emacs-server-port variable
in emacs, and an environment variable (or registry key) in the client.

Don't you need to add support for that random key to the protocol ?
