[OS X Emacs] Aquamacs, Tramp and command-line

the "open" command cannot pass parameters and other arbitrary material  
to an application.
You will need to start the Aquamacs application as described in plenty  
of places (as is done to start it with '-Q').

Alternatively, use "emacsclient" (included within the Aquamacs .app  
bundle).  That should allow you to open things with Tramp.

Hope that helps.
