 seemed to be trying to communicate more than expected with the old
 server.  Maybe it could fail more clearly when the version doesn't
 match.
+
+One aspect of this is how the Emacs Lisp code handles version
+mismatch.  Another is how it finds omake_server.exe.  If the initial
+localization code (based on (file-name-directory load-file-name)) took
+an absolute pathname, it would resolve the
+/j/office/app/emacs/dev/jane-elisp symlink to a particular version,
+which would have some good effects, including really allowing a
+running Emacs to continue finding binaries and things in the old
+release.  This can be dangerous in combination with automount, though.
