I'm not attached to the old- and new- names. Anyone should feel free
to change them. I used "new" because
distinguishes between "sysV" and " new-style" daemons.

I actually started with "--daemon-fg" and "--daemon-bg", but the Emacs
argument parsing code can't handle one argument (ie "--daemon") being a
prefix of another. If someone fixes argmatch to prefer an exact match to
a prefix match, those would work.

"--fg-daemon" and "--bg-daemon" sound fine to me.

Switches --foreground (I don't think it's worth a short option like -F)
and --background sound fine too.

PS: emacs_devel.txt: seven years for a feature to get implemented,
then overnight 4 people suggest different names for the option. ;)
