I think we should. Why do we need to supply a force option? Can't we
just assume that it should always be force? I can't think of all that many
times when not using the force option wouldn't be valid. We [generally]
allready assume it so with the <remove> tag. (rm -rf %target)
I don't see the point in having extra options for nothing, but prove me
