Bug#718422: elvis: "-c open" at startup fails to start in "open mode"

Package: elvis
Version: 2.2.0-11.1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The man pages state the "-c <command>" should act like
issuing ":command" after the first buffer has been opened.
However, starting elvis with

  bash$ elvis -c open myfile.txt

doen't actually switch to "open mode" like

  bash$ elvis myfile.txt

does.  I've tried it with "+open", "-c :open", and "+:open",
none of which switch to open mode in the same way as
manually executing the ":open" ex command.

Either the docs need to be updated to reflect what can/can't
be issued as an ex command, or elvis should be updated to
actually perform as advertised in the docs.
