I think we mis-communicate...

You talk about emacsclient _starting emacs_ and instructing that emacs
to start the server, so emacsclient can talk to that emacs.  I
understand how that works nicely with e.g. Windows' Explorer and file
associations, and how subsequent calls to emacsclient will talk to
the emacs started by the first emacsclient.

But in my case, I _always_ have emacs running (not started by
emacsclient), so I want emacsclient to talk to that emacs -- how do
you do that without starting the server (e.g. in .emacs) before
running emacsclient?
