Thanks for the hint.  In the source for the toplevel, it says

  if Sys.file_exists ".ocamlinit" then ignore(use_silently ppf ".ocamlinit")

It would be nice if it opened ~/.ocamlinit but it's no big deal because the
alias can just be

  alias o='cp ~/.ocamlinit .ocamlinit; ledit ocaml'

So, as usual, OCaml can do what I want.
