Isn't it better to start with a well known number and if that is busy, just

Huh?  Why would you need that.
It seems just as simple to
- bind to any port.

And if that fails, what do you do?  You still have to handle bind failures.

- get the port that was used.
- write it into ~/.emacs.d/server/server ("server" is the default
  `server-name') along with the host name and the auth key.

emacsclient looks in ~/.emacs.d/server/server (where "server" is the
default but can be changed with --server-name) to find all the relevant info.

Emacsclient by default then reads ~/emacs.d/server-0.  emacsclient --server 1
would be ~/emacs.d/server-1.

That sounds messy.

If you think so, I don't see much difference.
