Re: Back to emacsclient/server

      - Currently, when emacsclient fails the authentication check, it
    just ends (because Emacs closes the connection). Should it give an
    error message?

That would be an improvement.

      - server.el generates the authentication string with `random', but
    Emacs uses the same seed every time. I'm reluctant to call (random t)
    in server.el; Emacs doesn't do it for a good reason (repeatability).

Let's make (random 'random) generate a new seed, use it, then restore
the old one, so that it has no effect on the sequence.  This is a much
smaller change than adding a means to read and set the random seed.
I'd rather not do the latter now, but we could do it later.
