      It is dangerous to do something like this too low down as it can break other
      things, for example the CVS interface loads the CVS/Entries file and if your
      extension made the file load and go to line 20 the cvs directory list would
      not be correct, there are plenty of other examples.

      I think the best way to do this would be to write a wrapper around the
      find-file command and bind the new macro to C-x C-f, i.e.

      define-macro my-find-file
      find-file ....
      !if '$buffer-fname in list' and 'file just loaded'
      goto-line ...
      global-bind-key my-find-file "C-x C-f"

      You may find that you have to replace a couple of commands but the side effect
      are far easier to control. The difficulty with this is to actually store the
      final cursor position of each file as it is deleted and this will require a
      little hacking in the macro release.

      The best mechanism to use would be the very little used $buffer-dhook variable which
      can be set to the name of a macro which will be called when the buffer is
      deleted. The only difficulty is setting this variable and the only solution I
      can think of that's near reasonable is to modify the buffer-init function in
      buffinit.emf (look for the setting of $buffer-fhook) to simply set this
      variable to your macro. You will also need to create an fhook-default to
      handle general files without a hook.

      I have been thinking for some time that if a 'my-fhook-always' macro exists
      then it is called for all files loaded, perhaps this can be addressed for the
      next release so you would be able to remove your changes from buffinit.
