It just seems intuitive (as I've tried the command several times still
expecting it to work :) that if I say "recursive" and don't pass an arg,
I mean ".". Obviously, since recursive is not the default, and implicit
dot-target for that case wouldn't make any sense, nor would it work in a
logical manner.

Just a thought. I'm not really hung up on it.
