You lost me there.  .emacs is only run at startup, after which the
window manager can do anything it wants with the positioning and
visibility of the frames - or was that your point?

Right.  I'm using -c as well.

The requirement is this: I should be able to -- with a single keystroke -- to get from any application into emacs into org mode.  However make-frame-visible and raise-frame dont quite work: If emacs is iconized it gets de-iconized but if it is already one of the open windows below some other -- firefox, shell, whatever -- it remains under that with the emacs tab blinking. As a consequence Ive got to use the mouse (or shuffle through Alt-Tab).

wmctrl does the job. But using it makes for two calls -- wmctrl and emacsclient -- and that makes for a packaging under a (inline) shell-script.

If it's the -c you don't like, you can always dump the commands in a
script.  That's nice because it gives you more breathing space to do
things like error checking on the exit code of the wmctrl.

What I dont like is having to use a shell call for some functionality that is almost certainly available under elisp.
