Hi, Dan.  Thanks for the response.  What I was trying to outline below
was partially whether the functionality worked or not, but also that
the emacsclient interface is different that the standard emacs
interface, and that this seems a little bit unfortunate, seeing as
they could be the same.  Would it be possible to have them be the
same?  I think it would make interacting with the server/client much
easier.

This is also the main thing that I was having issue with not working.
Is there any reason the behavior of just having emacsclient called
without any arguments open up an empty frame can't be supported?

jamie.
