Karl, thanks for the feedback.

The semantics and output of these commands vary pretty strongly. IMO,
it's more confusing to try and jam two different behaviors into a
single command, and pretend that different "modes" can handle it.

Assuming we did go this route, which "mode" is the default? (See
previous exchange with Giovanni.)

Thanks, Dan
