I don't think they're reversed, "this is handy" refers to the previous
sentence "delete [...] without being asked [...] for all of them".
Maybe it would be clearer if the second sentence said "For example"
instead of "This is handy".

Also, I'd say the word "recursively" *is* reversed with one of the words
around it, it should be either "recursively delete directories" or
"delete directories recursively".
