is it possible to export an org file from the command line, so that a
currently running Emacs instance is not disturbed? I want to export the
attached org file and run the included source blocks, so I have an
activity report in the end. I use the shell script pasted below, but
there are two problems:

- my Emacs instance is blocked during the execution of the shell
  scripts contained in the file
- the script globally sets org-confirm-babel-evaluate to nil for my
  Emacs instance

The second problem could possibly be solved with a local file variable.
But the first problem remains. If I use emacs instead of emacsclient, it
complains about a running Emacs instance.


  emacsclient -c \
  --eval "(progn
    (find-file \"macports.org\"))
    (setq org-confirm-babel-evaluate nil)
    (org-export-as-html 3)

I'm using Org-Mode 7.7.
