a suggestion for rm

This is not really a bug report but a suggestion for "rm".

Would it not make more sense for rm to fail completely
if one of the files on the command line is not found? For
example if I intend to delete the file foo1 and type
rm foo 1
and by chance have a file named "foo", it will be gone;
even though rm can tell that something is wrong since
it will fail on trying to unlink "1".
