I think we're (at least the 3 of us) thinking along similar lines. The
important thing is for others to agree to have a `visit-on-startup' option.

I think that the definition of `visit-on-startup' could probably be as
simple as I suggested (see my reply to Juri), but I might be wrong and we
would need to add a separate `choice' for a buffer to visit.
