Hi Eli,

Thanks for having another look.

I was going for "use the socket that was passed over to Emacs", but yes
I think the name could be better.

One of the comments on the last version of patches was to try and keep
the name generic, as there could be other programs that pass over
sockets in a similar fashion, such as xinetd.  I could go with
:use-systemd-socket if you want, though?

Yes, sorry.  I realised when I sent the patch in that forgot about that.
I'll send over a final patch series that includes the docs, once we've
got the name sorted :-).
