Is it possible to launch the editor in the background using this

This is an important feature of the emacs.bash script: if the editor
isn't launched in the background then the shell is blocked until the
editor exits.  And on the other hand, we don't want to launch
emacsclient itself in the background because otherwise the user isn't
notified that she hasn't closed the server buffer(s) in Emacs.
