There's already the -a="" option if I want that.  '-c' already acts
the same as '-t' if you're at a terminal with no graphical display.

Really I just want to say, "open whatever type of frame Emacs would
normally open."

In the script I was writing when I wrote this report I eventually used
`if emacs -Q --batch --eval "(kill-emacs (if (featurep 'x) 0 1))"' to
decide whether to creat a graphical frame or use --tty.
