Actually it is not hard, at least for this specific case and in Emacs >=
24 (didn't check older Emacsen):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun my-find-file-around-ad (origfun &rest args)
  (interactive
   (find-file-read-args "Open file: "
                        (confirm-nonexistent-file-or-buffer)))
  (apply origfun args))

(advice-add 'find-file :around #'my-find-file-around-ad)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But I think in the long term it's better to get used to the Emacs
nomenclature.


Michael.
