vim --cmd start /some/file
works for new files, and puts you into insert mode on the first line of
an existing file.
If you want to have vim start by appending to an existing file, use
echo >> /some/file
vim + --cmd start /some/file
to append a line first, or your session will start in "insert" mode with
the cursor at the beginning of the last line.
