Or, you could solve your specific use case with a wrapper script and
keep emacsclient’s CLI simple and unambiguous and avoid the need to
invent more syntax.

The script could look like this (which is not sophisticated enough to
handle :DIGITS in options and may especially interfere with the
--display option, but will get you a long way):


import itertools
import re
import sys
import subprocess

RE_LINE_COL = re.compile(r'^(.*?)((?::[0-9]+){,2})$')

    *[['+%s' % line_col[1:], filename] if line_col else [filename]
       for arg in sys.argv[1:]
       for filename, line_col in RE_LINE_COL.findall(arg)]))
