It seems like we have completely different recollections of events.
As far as I remember, Richard oked getting emacsclient to work on
Windows even after the first pretest (where emacsclient was not yet a
part of Emacs).

There is no point whatsoever in reverting to the state of the first
pretest, namely "non-working".  Whether there is sense to reverting to
a later point of development has not been discussed yet: up to now the
developers tried getting the functionality to do the right thing.
Telling them that they should stop doing so and revert to some earlier
stage would require agreement on just what this earlier state should
be.  "non-working" is what you demand.

Up to now there has been no discussion about where we should exactly
draw the line with regard to emacsclient (work is still going on), but
I don't think that "non-working" would get much support.
