Why not instead of adding the new option, rearrange the logic so that it
only tries to parse the ":linenum" part if the file doesn't exist?

emacsclient somefile:1234

tries to open "somefile:1234", then if it fails, looks for the :1234 and
tries to open "somefile" and jump to line 1234. That shouldn't surprise
anyone with weirdly named files and you don't need to learn any new
command line options.
