Yes. Usually, I use the gnucleintw.exe for opening files in the same GNU
Emacs window. For starters, just opening a file in a running GNU Emacs
sprocess would be fine. Slowly, we can extend it to handle features of
"gnudoit" which can send lisp expressions to be evaluated by a running
GNU Emacs process. The whole idea is to make better packaging (as I do
not see any improvement over existing framework of using gnuserv).

with regards,

PS: My understanding of GNU Emacs internals is *highly* limited. I can
contribute ideas but I may not be able to do the actual implementation.
Also, I do have MS Windows app dev exp and hence cannot comment on core
platform dependent issues.
