You're right.

I would've liked some comments, though, for two reasons:

  - It's an incompatible change, if small: --socket-name does not
exist, and you *must* use either the EMACS_SERVER_FILE environment
variable or the --server-file argument to emacsclient; otherwise
emacsclient will refuse to work.

  - I've been vocal in stressing that I think our freeze is not very
cold at all. So I'd like someone with a more objective POV to decide
whether this (making emacsclient/server work on Windows and from
remote machines) is a bug fix or a new feature. Of course I'd like to
include it now, but I won't complain if the decision goes to shelving
it for the moment being.
