Jim, what do you think of this alternative patch, which avoids the
issue of a new translation string by instead letting getopt parsing
reject -d like any other unknown option?

I like it.  Thank you.

+  rm -d now issues an error rather than being silently ignored.

How about a slight change in wording to make clear
that the entire "rm" command was not being ignored.

   rm's -d now evokes an error;  before, it was silently ignored.

Pushed with that change.
