Not true.  You can use `-a emacs' in the emacsclient invocation.

There has currently been a discussion on the emacs devel list where
I have tried to argue that in Emacs 22 emacsclient should be able to
automatically start emacs when needed. I think most people there
would agree it is a good (but for many not very important)
thing. However it does not seem that it will make it into Emacs 22.

For the GNOME association, the above should do the trick perfectly
well.


Yes, you are right. However you have also to start emacs server in your init files.

The more problematic case is when you want to use emacs as an edit server for another program and wait. In that case you have to have emacs started first.
