If they break, is because they are using undocumented behavior,
because AFAICS neither "emacsclient -h"

  -e, --eval              Evaluate the FILE arguments as ELisp expressions

nor section 38.2 "`emacsclient' Options" of the Emacs manual

       Tell Emacs to evaluate some Emacs Lisp code, instead of visiting
       some files.  When this option is given, the arguments to
       `emacsclient' are interpreted as a list of expressions to
       evaluate, _not_ as a list of files to visit.

say anything about return values.

So I think I'll check in the change and wait for the breakage.
