Maybe you know it and you're just experimenting, but I just want to make
sure you do realize that gnuclient/gnuserver already solve those problems,
so clearly there isn't much point is creating yet another system.  What we
want instead is to extend server.el and emacsclient.c with support for TCP
sockets (and maybe add an elisp version of emacsclient.c).

I'd prefer an automatically generated random string, but it otherwise
looks reasonable.
