Sorry, I do not know network programming enough. Someone who could implement this must know this on both the unix style and winsock.

The first thing is to hope for someone who can and want to do
this. If this fail I think we at least should tell the truth about
the state of Emacs in this respect.

Where do we lie about it?

I just looked again at all the files in CVS to see where gnuclient/server is mentioned. As far as I can see it is not mentioned anywhere that you should use gnuclient/server on w32. Beside this there is no pointer at all to the w32 version of gnuclient/server.

Maybe all we can do at this stage is mention in Info how to get around the missing emacsclient/server on w32 and where to find gnuclient/server for w32? I think this is a minimum and I also think that this really should help new users on w32.

Could this suggestion be accepted? I can of try writing this info.
