This is a useful feature.  I have a security question for the people
on emacs-devel who support non-GNU-like platforms.  server.el sets up
mode 0700 for the socket.  Is that sufficient security, on all
platforms, to make it safe to install this feature?

      In practice I don't
    expect this to be a problem, although if this is a major concern, a
    option such as --lisp could be added to emacsclient to inhibit adding
    the absolute pathname to the argument, instead of always treating
    arguments that begin with an open parenthesis as LISP expressions.

Perhaps there should be an option --file that forces an argument to be
treated as a file even if it starts with open-paren.  Scripts could
use that; meanwhile, interactive use would remain maximally convenient.
