These files will need cleaning up, including in the case where Emacs crashes. So it is probably easier to use a fixed port, or a fixed filename and only allow one instance of the server for an initial implementation, since I don't think there is going to be time to implement all of this before the release.

OTOH, perhaps it is already too late to consider this for release, and Windows users will have to continue to use gnuclient until Emacs 23 is released. In that case, you might as well deal with the tricky issues now.
