Seems reasonable. If the list isn't included, then it would simply
commit... no harm, no foul. But if it *does* detect a list, then it
can look for a mismatch.

And the false-positive is no big deal: the user is simply asked a
question and can easily continue the operation. Non-interactive mode
would skip the check and question.
