Upon playing with "stevie" it seems that it doesn't actually support
"open mode", but "elvis" (another vi clone) does.  For elvis, you can
do the same thing:

  bash$ elvis myfile.txt

or you can specify that you want to use open mode at the command-line:

  bash$ elvis -G open myfile.txt

which you can alias with

  alias evi='elvis -G open'

to make it easier.
