You can also try http://mindlube.com/products/emacs/index.html.

As to emacsclient: I don't think you need it. If you put an alias

alias emacs='open -a /Applications/Emacs.app'

in ~/.bash_profile then each command-line call of emacs will reuse
an already running Carbon emacs.

The main problem I have with this emacs is that the vertical scrollbar
behaves erratically.
