I'm not somewhere where I can compile and test right now, but that
*looks* like it'll do what I want.  I'll come back and complain some
more over the weekend if I try it and it doesn't.  ;-)

I think that if there's no useable graphical display for *any* reason,
'-c' should be a synonym for '-t'.  The man page for emacsclient just
says "create a new frame instead of trying to use the current Emacs
frame" for that option, so the user hasn't *really* requested a
graphical frame.
