Probably.  Unfortunately, it's more complicated to implement than just
allowing -r and -D to coexist -- in most cases, the existing code
already does the right thing if you just remove the check.

Probably not.  Note, however, that it's a lot more work than just
updating the code -- you need to update the documentation as well.
