"The emacsclient program can specify a server by name, using the -s
Since I want only one server instance running, you mean I could define
alias-names that point to the same server, but set up different fg/bg
I would not know how to do this. 

I already solved the color-problem using the server-visit-hook and
display-graphic-p predicate. 

I still have some problems to gracefully exit my "1 server, many
(terminal and X11) clients" setup. When I use 'C-x #' to close unused
emacsclients in the X11 and return to my terminal session, all my
emacsclients there are killed too - very inconvenient. And when I
finally kill the emacs-daemon with 'M-x kill-emacs', I'm asked at the
next start-up if I want to recover the crashed session. But I don't want
to crash emacs on exit, I want to shut it down in a controlled and
civilized manner.
