the console version (being able to shell out and remain in
the same window, for example.)
I'd be quite happy, though, if the directory change was only done
(a) on a full path *and* (b) with a command-line switch, since
I'd only have to tweak my file association settings once and
everything would work as it did before. That would be incompatible
with 5.7, of course.
[For the record, I do sometimes invoke vim from the command-line
with a full path, and the directory change behaviour is sometimes
what I want, sometimes not. I guess I need to work on "if_brain.c".]

taht, a command-line switch doesn't work (unless the switch is ignored if
there are no files after it, and even then, it's pretty clumsy).
