(setq server-window 'pop-to-buffer)

Since server.el and emacsclient.c do not offer any way to add new
options like --create-frame, your best bet is probably something like

  emacsclient --eval '(find-file-other-frame "FILE")'

But maybe you have a point that it should be possible to add new
options, kind of like what is done with `command-switch-alist'.
