	When I run "make delete-old", I get asked about each individual file.
	There are a _lot_ of files.
	Is there a way to say "y" to everything?  I know this -
technically - incurs a certain amount of risk.  But considering Ican't
remember any reports of someone getting bit by this it seems like a
risk worth taking.
