I agree with you except for the argument of it being dangerous for rm
to be recursive... non-recursion doesn't even make sense in the context
of rm. When you rm a file there is nothing to recurse into. When you
rm a directory, if successful, implicitly all the children of that
directory go with it. Basically rm has to by definition always be
recursive. :)
