I'm not sure. On one hand, if there's no trouble, there's no need to
complicate things. On the other, yeah, the context is slightly
different, but do you really expect to have to debug much Emacs
library code which fails in the context of emacsclient --eval? (I say
"Emacs library code" because if the trouble is in the evaled string,
the stderr message is already a good clue.)

I am glad to read that ;-)

Eh, so long as you're also ready to be easily convinced...

Then could it not easily happen that the source of the problem is not

That depends of what you're doing with "emacsclient -n --eval". I'd
expect the user (or client program) to detect that nothing is
happening :)

Is not that an argument for beeing able to get a traceback the
way I suggested?

Perhaps. All this is in the purely hypothetical realm right now.
