Hmm... shouldn't it just display that file's buffer and ignore
initial-buffer-choice?  Wait, I see the doc says:

   displayed.  If ‘initial-buffer-choice’ is non-‘nil’, then if you specify
   any files on the command line, Emacs still visits them, but does not
   display them initially.

So I guess no, we shouldn't ignore initial-buffer-choice when there are
files specified on the command line.  So your patch will require
updating the doc, but I think the behavior it provides is good.

Sounds good.

You're welcome.  Feel free to install it.
I hope my review wasn't too prompt, tho,
