(I'm going through old bug reports that unfortunately got little response at
the time.)

I think that this sounds like too specialised behaviour to warrant
adding a new parameter to emacsclient.  It should be trivial to write a
wrapper script that does exactly what you want here (i.e., just call
emacsclient without the first parameter).

So I'm closing this bug report.
