I think the way to do it is to change emacsclient.c so that any "--foo"
arg simply gets sent to server.el.  This way the addition of --readonly

support can be implemented all in server.el.  Then server.el should be
changed to provide a hook that lets user add handling for their
own --foo args so that you can even do it without changing server.el.
