 > Yeah.. +1 too. What about just getting rid of that flag completely and
 using g.list instead? While updating python scripts, I found it's just too
 much typing to add flags="f" every time and it doesn't make much sense in
 scripting anyway. Since the API of g.remove is compatible with g.list API
 as far as search patterns are concerned, it's a matter of changing module
 names. Is it too dangerous?

 I am afraid it is. Especially when users are used to it from the previous
 interface. Using -f flag only when using pattern/exclude would make more
 sense if want to avoid using it every time, but I understand why you don't
 like it. Some more input from others would be appreciated...
