      It oughtn't to be hard: I believe that

      :autocmd VimEnter * rviminfo

      would do the trick (but I haven't tested it). Or maybe that's what you use
      already? IMO you should write a tip about it for Vim-online.

      N.B.: OTOH, for those who like a "clean" buffer list, ":ls!" followed (at
      the More or Hit-Enter prompt) by ":bw <number>..." (i.e. bw with one or more
      buffer numbers) will let you erase entries (forever, or at least until
      re-created, so be careful what you wipe out); but the remaining ones will
      keep their numbers until next restart. Note the difference between ":ls!"
      and ":ls" and between ":bw[ipeout]" and ":bd[elete]".

      Best regards,
