Accidental Removal

We had an accident with CVS and was wondering if anyone had ideas on
how to prevent this in the future.

Someone typed 'cvs remove -f' and accidentally hit the enter key
before entering a filename.  Because CVS interprets no filename to
mean all files, all files recursively were deleted.

The only solution I have developed so far is for everyone to put
'remove -l dum' in ~/.cvsrc so that any future accidents will just
produce an annoying warning.

Does anyone have any better ideas?

We are using 1.10.7.  Does any newer version behave differently?
