If you use -P you know what you're doing, or at least if you use -f
with -P. DragonFly by default allows any user to do a hard link to
a file he doesn't own, so if you really want to delete file contents
you must be able to.

The system shouldn't prevent the user doing what he feels is ok or
we will end importing clippy :)

La prueba más fehaciente de que existe vida inteligente en otros
planetas, es que no han intentado contactar con nosotros.
