That can't be right - how would you know whether to pass the option?

Either you can safely remove dups, or you can't safely remove dups,
it's not like you just get to choose, right? We're talking about what
works vs. what doesn't. If it works to remove dups then you would
enable it all the time, otherwise enable it never. Or am I confused?

Isn't the solution just to make the duplicate-removal algorithm a bit
smarter, so it only removes them when it can.
