There was mention about this before.  In a more general way, we would
want the job running inside the terminal be able to talk back to the Vim
in which the terminal is running.

Currently $VIM_SERVERNAME is passed to the job.  There is an example of
how to use it:

        vim --servername $VIM_SERVERNAME --remote +123 some_file.c

This will open the file "some_file.c" and put the cursor on line 123.

Without the +clientserver feature this doesn't work, and in terminal Vim
the clientserver code is not initialized by default.

An alternative would be to support a custom escape sequence enclosing an
arbitrary Vim command.  This is tricky, since it can be abused to have
Vim execute any command when catting a file to the terminal.
We could restrict it to opening a file, a bit like the :drop command.
That would solve perhaps 90% of the desired functionality.
