Emacsclient claims to have that functionality already.  From the
usage-message:

-q, --quiet             Don't display messages on success

This should, in my opinion, cover the case of successfully eval-ing
forms.  However, -q currently has no effect on output from emacs, it
only inhibits messages about connecting to emacs.

The attached patch should prevent emacsclient from printing non-error
output from emacs to the terminal.

With this the terminal stays quiet after exiting the client frame when I
do "emacsclient -q -c -e '(+ 2 3)'".  Without the -q, the terminal
prints 5 as before.
