There are one use case where it could be very useful

A script could be a help for users but what users have changed has priority
over what the script has changed.

So reverting everything unconditionally is not good, as the script has made
changes to its local copy and wants to commit these changes if possible.

(However personally I would prefer instead of a force-update a special commit
that skips conficts.)

Have a nice day!
