--cleanup to remove local files if no remote is given

At my last presentation it was suggested to have an option that would
treat the input as files and remove these after running the job.

--cleanup already does this for remote jobs.

Would it make sense that if you do not have remote jobs that --cleanup
will remove the input?

# This would remove the files
ls | parallel --cleanup echo

# This would only remove the files on server2
ls | parallel --cleanup --transfer -S :,server2 echo

# What should this do?
ls | parallel --cleanup -S : echo

I am a bit worried that --cleanup might do something the user would
not expect and removing files is the kind of 'unexpected' that is
