A couple of questions on the use of AllowSetForegroundWindow:

* Should it be used if the emacs is "remote" i.e. not at  What if
emacsclientw is running on w32, Emacs is running on Unix, and you try to
foreground a Unix pid.  Is it possible to confirm that a remote host is
actually the local host?  Is it worthwhile to do so?

* Is the AllowSetForegroundWindow really necessary since it isn't called
when emacsclient is run on Unix to a w32 Emacs yet the w32 Emacs responds
and raises in the window stack as you'd expect.

Finally, if people could take another look at the Tramp changes I proposed
for emacsclient.  Again, I'll defer to Richard on whether they should be
committed, but they make the use of multiple remote hosts talking to a
single Emacs much easier.  I can type fc at my Unix shell prompt and edit
the command in my w32 Emacs.  BTW, I do have an updated version (minor
changes) of that patch which I can post, but I'll wait until its clear we
want to move forward.  I'm running with it and it works flawlessly.
