Let's see...  I create a daemon and two "-nw" emacsclients, and then:

(setq focus-in-hook '((lambda () (message "focus %s" (selected-frame)))))

Clicking in the two clients does not display the message, so I guess
that these terminals do not support focus-in events?  (This is
Debian/bullseye under Gnome Shell, with "Terminal" as the terminal,
which should be a very common environment.)

I don't know the former, but perhaps the main problem with doing it
manually today is that you first have to find the emacsclient that has
the minibuffer active to hit `C-g' in it.  Hitting `C-g' in any other
terminal does nothing.

Perhaps that is something that could be fixed?  That is, in an
emacsclient context, `C-g' should interrupt the minibuffer action, no
matter what frame it's happening in?
