There seem to be some more strings attached...

Using "emacsclient --parent-id %w %s", Fedora 22, I encounter the following

1. The new emacs buffer in the Claws compose windows doesn't get real
focus. It is shown and responds to key strokes, but the cursor stays
hollow. This may be cosmetic, unless related to 2.

2. Control and Alt keys are not passed to the client. While this may be
good for some purposes (e.g., intercepting Control-Enter), it blocks an
awful lot of Emacs' functionality.
