That's fine as a reason why it behaves that way currently, but (without having
checked the details) I think it's wrong and should be allowed at least with
"--force".

[Via auto-props.] Apparently not. I think it would be right to modify the
auto-props handling so that this combination is allowed. After all, auto-props
is a configuration which the user has the opportunity to test, not a
command-line option that is immediately acted upon, so it is not appropriate to
disallow the combination just because it is usually a mistake.
