In the CVS version of Emacs, emacsclient supports the --eval argument
which allows you to eval arbitrary Lisp code, including, say 

      (set-buffer "memo")
      (goto-char (point-max))
      (insert "SOME TEXT GOES HERE\n"))

There is also the gnuserv package which contains the gnudoit program
which can do the same.
