Now David, I'm sure if you studied emacs for a decade or so you'd
begin to appreciate it.  But this isn't even one of the obscure
points: in this case the words "client" and "server" mean what
you'd expect them to (that is, in the possibly unlikely event that
the X windows terminology makes sense to you): emacs becomes a
server supplying "editing services" to other applications via the 
"emacsclient" program.  

The plethora of silly little tweaks like this are one of the
things that makes me fantasize about beginning to work on that
"Oyster" linux distro idea.
