I have an idea how to reduce the likelihood of damage from typos in using of rm. rm needs one option in which specified files/dirs aren't deleted until one of them doesn't exist (including deleting of directories without "-r" option). In this way an accidental space or missing quotes won't result in deleting of wrong files in most cases.
