Actually, I don't think so.  IIRC What we need for emacsclient/server to
work on Windows is to make it work over TCP sockets rather than only over
Unix sockets (because Windows supports TCL sockets but not Unix sockets).

A good approach could be something like: in server.el, use a TCP server
socket (on a non-specified port).  Once opened, check to see which port was
used.  Write the port and hostname together with a secret random string into
~/.emacs_server.  When a connection comes in, check that the first bytes
sent are exactly the same as the random string (authentication).
