Thanks for the suggestion.
However, although -x is indeed a common option of several
programs, we are reluctant to add new short options.

I'd only consider doing so for compatibility reasons if
there would already exist an implementation of 'rm -x'.
I didn't find any ... apart from 'srm' [1] which even
has a different program name.
Do you know any other?
