- time 0: Emacs 1 starts its server.
- time 1: Emacs 2 starts its server, overriding Emacs 1's server.
- time 2: Emacs 1 exits: if it deletes the socket, it actually deletes
  Emacs 2's, not its own, so it'd be a bug

But more concretely, what good would it serve to delete the socket when the
server exits?
