: You must start the server with (server-start) in .emacs.

Thanks. Is not this a bit fragile? One of the problems I had in the
beginning when I started to use Emacs was errors in startup files that
prevented gnuserv from starting. That made it a bit more difficult to fix
the problems than it should have been.

Is there any reason that emacsserver is not started automatically when
called by emacsclient? If you call with the client you probably want the
server to connect to the server, or? There could still be possibilities for
options when starting the server. A lisp file in site-lisp could for example
be called.

I just made a slight rewrite of gnuclient to test such a solution and I
found it hard to see any drawbacks with it. But our total creativity is of
course much bigger ;-)
