However, I don't see the need to add a new option syntax 'emacsclient --files-with-line-col FILE:LINE:COLUMN' to mean the same thing. Why not just use the longstanding syntax?

Hi Paul,

As discussed earlier in the thread, this patch enables compatibility with tools like ag/grep/etc which use the FILE:LINE format for referencing positions. I myself, use an awk script to rearrange the arguments to work with the current +LINE FILE format accepted by emacsclient ( Ref: https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-01/msg00541.html ). 

Having this patch installed will prevent the need for such workarounds and we will have a harmony of using FILE:LINE format of position referencing across emacsclient/ag/grep/..
