    My personal setting is 'top which is certainly more convenient than t
    but might be considered too drastic as a default setting by some.

I think that `top' would be an ok default.
Let's change the default in the trunk.

I'm uneasy about `top' vs. t as the default: when I'm prompted "Recursive delete of SUBDIR? ", I expect that if I answer "yes"
that I'll be prompted for SUBDIR's subdirectories as well.
