Indeed, that is very useful.
$ mvim --servername DIR1 --remote-silent DIR1/foo.c
$ mvim --servername DIR1 --remote-silent DIR1/bar.c
$ mvim --servername DIR2 --remote-silent DIR2/quxx.c
Gives two windows. Perhaps all that is needed is a nice wrapper script
or alias around that. Personally I have :e aliases in my shell to
'mvim --remote-silent' currently, so for me
$ :e --servername DIR1 DIR1/foo.c
