Not sure what OP means, but I would like something similar too:

Having one emacs server running with possibly many emacsclients
connected, address one specific emacsclient from a program. 

Say I have a tmux window with 3 tiles, one of them the PicoLisp REPL,
another an emacsclient window showing an emacs-w3m buffer. Now I want a
PicoLisp command that calls emacs to show symbol documentation in
emacs-w3m (instead of standalone w3m, which is easy to achieve). 

But there are several tmux windows opwn, and more emacsclients
connected. How do I tell the emacs-server on the command-line to reuse
that one specific emacsclient instance side-by-side with the PicoLisp
REPL?
