emacsclient x:foo

I've just commited a change to emacsclient on Windows so


which was until now understood to be a NTFS filestream, it is now interpreted as


That is more consistent with most programs on Windows, and much more
user friendly (NTFS streams are not often used directly by the user,
while drive-relative filenames are common).

For simplicity, I've processed all relative paths (not just X:foo, but
foo and .\foo and ./foo, for example) through the GetFullPathName API.
AFAICS, that improves consistency; cases where previously Emacs
received X:\foo/bar will now be X:\foo\bar. Absolute paths, like
X:/foo/bar, are still passed unscathed.

All this preamble is to ask: if someone is using a Windows emacsclient
to connect to non-Windows Emacs servers, I'd like to know of any
regressions with respect to filename handling.
