[OS X Emacs] emacsclient works differently than gnuclient (XEmacs)

The emacsclient program with Aquamacs Emacs (and presumably GNU Emacs)
doesn't work the same way the old gnuclient program used to.  It latter took
a -q argument which allowed a new frame to open up without giving a specific
filename to edit.  You'd just close that frame in the usual way (C-x 5 0).
I don't see a way to do that.

More importantly, it appears that when giving a filename arg it still opens
the file in the current frame.  Is it not possible to have a glass tty (no
gui window) frame with Aquamacs Emacs?
