      Hi Kimmo,

      I'm not that familier with VIM. So to clarify what you are saying then
      if a file is opened that was opened in a previous session then the file
      position (line/col) is restored as the starting point.

      Like you say similar to -c. The difference being is that you open the
      file yourself from a 'blank' session (or one with say a few files
      loaded). I assume that there is a limit on the "visited" files - would
      this be the last 10 files perhaps ?

      No the fhook mechanism is template (language) specific it is not generic
      enough to cater for all files. The all file hook was discussed some
      time ago but I do not think it is in the current public release build.
