Incidentally, I don't like the name --force; it is really inadequate as a
description (or even reminder) of the associated behavior.  fileflags.diff
renames the option to --force-delete, but that sounds stronger than --delete,
which it isn't.  --replace-dirs is pretty good but doesn't cover the
interaction with --delete-missing-args.  --clobber-dirs is better there but may
be too silly.
