I'm very curious, what does this offer you over simple C-x C-f.  The way
I see it, emacsclient is useful to have access to single Emacs instance
whenever you want to edit something, so you can connect to the instance
from anywhere.  But if you are already in an emacs frame, how does this
add anything?
