I'd find this useful in a totally different situation.
When I type
        mv a b x
I sometimes feel uncomfortable when I've already entered b, but not yet typed x.
I could nouw type
        mv -t x a b
without worrying. Other than that, it closer resembles what I think:
I have to move some files to x, and these file s are a [thinking] and b.
