I'm ambivalent.  This argument implies that we should give different
exit code for everything that could lead to failure in emacsclient, and
there are 18 separate cases in emacsclient.c.  It seems to me that, in
practice, people don't bother looking up the exit code, since there's no
established convention (other than 0 for success and 1 for failure);
they just look at the error message.
