Consider implmenting a --move or --delete-sent option?

Well, for me it seems this is quite unnecessary since it is already 
implemented elsewhere: "rm -rf upload_dir".

Even the --remove-sent-files seems redundant, since removing files can 
always be done with "rm", can't it?

Even when using complex rules to select the files, one can parse the 
output of rsync and fed the file list to "rm".

Rsync has already too many options, it would be nice to reduce them, not 
to increase their number unnecessaryly.
