What command would open a file in the default editor of Cloud9's IDE from within its own terminal bash shell?

I tried xdg-open and gnome-open but those opens in emacs.

According to the Cloud 9 CLI docs and help, you should be able to open file in the Cloud 9 IDE with this:

c9 open <filename>

However, it currently returns an error message. As indicated by this issue, this function appears to be broken on the hosted VMs (eg: running on ide.c9.io).
