If I understand correctly, you agree that current implementation of
the "-rm" option is not what you want.

As far as I can tell, removing the "-rm" option harms nothing.
On the other hand, leaving the current "-rm" option introduces
security problem as I said.

At least current "-rm" implementaion is incorrect.
So what we can do now is to remove the "-rm" option.
I don't think there is any other option for the "correct code"
for now.

Why do you want to leave the incorrect "-rm" as is?
