I am wondering if I should place a feature request on this or just do it my

With great power comes great responsibility and as such I think there
should be a wrapper around rm to warn sysadmins that what they are about to
do with -rf is dangerous, yes?

Read input from sysadmin 3 times, looking strictly for their confirmation
before effecting the `rm -rf`.

Could it be that what I am smoking/drinking is the issue here or I have
your support? LOL
