Originally I was thinking a string (since that's what emacsclient does),
but I now feel that a Lisp form would be more useful and RPC-ey, and I
think the return value should also be a Lisp form.

That is, you'd say

(server-eval-at "foo" '(+ 1 2))

and get back


That is, `server-eval-at' will do a `read-from-string' on the output it
gets back from the server, basically.

Perhaps `eval-at' would be a better name, though?
