Eugene, thanks for the efforts on this front!

FWIW, I'd agree as well.
I think in the past, I denied this but it caused me also a few times
losing my session and indeed many people prefer to keep the session when
opening files from the CLI (or file manager or whatever).

So, my vote is 'yes' as well.
