- Happily, the gnuclientw function has been integrated, as emacsclientw, and all that's needed in .emacs is (start server)
- They recommend setting an environment var for some reason: set ALTERNATE_EDITOR to runemacs.exe
- Now I can associate files with emacsclientw.exe to open them in my current emacs session. However, add the '-n' argument so it doesn't maintain a link to explorer, and ask you to hit a keystroke to release the editing buffer. A puzzling default behavior.
I was surprised when it was slow to shut down the first time, but it has been much faster each time since. After a long time open, it is still noticably slow to shut down.
