id like to use the new server-client feature of emacs in debian testing.
How can this be done?

I want to improve the startuptime after typing the command 'emacs' for
every user on the system.

With a famous search engine i found

You can try setting the /EDITOR/ variable and always call emacs using
that. This looks for a running server, if there isn't one then it
starts a new server.

$ echo $EDITOR
emacsclient -nw -a=""

Or you can try putting the following in /etc/skel/.emacs,

;; start a server and make sure it has a name
(require 'server)
(setq server-host (system-name)
               server-use-tcp t)

However you should keep in mind that not every user wants to run emacs
in server mode.
