What people think of changing the above paragraph to

  You can either call emacsclient directly or set the environment

I think it is good to change the original text. However I would like to suggest to use a more OS neutral text. I do not believe the proposed use of EDITOR always work. Maybe you can say something like "Many programs look in the environment variable EDITOR ... "?

I think it would also be good to mention the desktop integration. I do not know exactly how this look on other OS:es but on my w32 system clicking a file of a type associated with Emacs will open this by calling gnuclientw (which is soon to be replaced by emacsclientw on w32 I hope).
