    I've always considered -f to simply mean to have rm attempt to

    until you mentioned it... that actually sounds like a mistake to me,
    it shouldn't do both!  I don't think we want -f to override -I.  -I
    is not meant to be treated the same as -i.  -I is supposed to be a
    non-intrusive 'smart' option.
Maybe we want -F to override -I. :)
