--daemon is a switch for running Emacs in the background.  If you don't
want Emacs running in the background, you don't have to do anything in

And setting the server socket location can be done easily from an .el
file or with --eval.  So I don't really think there's anything that
needs to be done here.  Please reopen the bug report if you disagree.
