> "make -rm an alias for -delete"

I think adding this "-rm" alias is a bad idea.
(On the other hand, I'm one who asked Elad to add the -delete option.)

The "-delete" option is a very specific feature to deal with symbolic
link race, and its usage is very limited.
For examle, "find dir -delete" does work, but "find dir1/dir2 -delete"
doesn't (this is intended feature to prevent the race).
Adding short alias like "-rm" isn't suitable for this limited feature,
