Mavericks enables me to make my finder windows full-screen. It's awesome.

When I first open a finder window, it opens by default as a small window on my desktop. I then have to click the arrows to enter full-screen mode.

I'd like finder to open in full-screen mode by default, but have not found how to do this.

Is there some voodoo terminal magic I can write to cause finder to open in full-screen mode by default?
