I've just checked in a patch to emacsclient that allows it to bring
Emacs to front just before passing it a file. "Allows" is the
operative word: Emacs won't be the foreground app unless it does
something to be, that is, call `raise-frame'.
Is this really Windows specific? It doesn't seem like it should be, as it is a user preference whether Emacs should jump to the front when emacsclient is used. Currently the frame is raised whenever Emacs was iconified, and there doesn't seem to be a user option to control this. Personally I think there should be a user option that controls whether Emacs is raised, whether iconified or not.

1) Modify `server-switch-buffer' to raise the frame. Hairy.
`server-switch-buffer' already does quite a lot of things to try to
determine the right buffer/window/frame (and in some cases it already
calls `raise-frame'), so I don't think it is wise to mess with it.
I think this is the best place for it though, as this code has knowledge about which frame needs to be raised.
