This isn't documented, however --delete-after will
perform that documented action.  It must be used with
--delete to work.

I spent much time determining this subtle CLI usage.

I would suggest either documenting --delete must be
used with --delete-after .  Alternatively, remove the
source code conditional that checks for the --delete
