I did not think of that, but then the problem with the chiken and the egg is
solved by me ;-)  -- and many others.

For gnuserv/gnuclient (from Guy Gascoigne-Piggford) it works like this:

- Gnuclient.exe starts Emacs if it is not started.
- I did a test and added an option to make Emacs start gnuserv automatigally
(simply by using the --load switch to Emacs). Works nice I think.

I believe that many users would expect the server to start like this (but
maybe I am wrong?). From a user interface view that is how many programs
really behave on ms windows, but many users of course never notice this.
