Distributing variants just adds to confusion and wastes precious
resources.  Therefore I think it should be done only if you have a

Solving this in both Emacs and emacsclient is a non-trivial job that
should not be undertaken now.  I hope you agree that solving it _only_
in emacsclient is a bad idea.
