Well, the "detach" stuff certainly had a bit of handwaving to it, but
I fleshed it out in later posts by proposing an additional
"emacsproxy" which would work without "fork" and similar niceties.

I do agree that while the approach that I fleshed out seems to me like
a more robust and transparent approach to the problem Lennart tries to
tackle, either approach would be a feature extension.

Lennart's would be easier to sneak in under the "we are in pretest, no
new features" reign, but personally I don't feel it is the most robust
way to tackle the problem, and it also would require updating manual
pages and documentation and stuff.

So my personal feeling is that for 22.1, we should bring emacsclient
under Windows merely up to what we already have under POSIX systems,
and leave the design and testing of further improvements to 23.1, in
particular since folding multi-tty support will make emacsclient a
whole different game, anyway, since it will then presumably be able to
open an editor in the current text tty, too (emacsclient -nw ...).
