I agree that emacsclient should mimic emacs as much as possible.
Maybe even there should be a common wrapper (with a different name)
for emacs and emacsclient: running it will start emacs if it is
not started yet or connect to an existing Emacs server.

At least, command line options shouldn't be so different as now,
e.g. instead of -t, --tty better to use --no-window-system, -nw...
