In terms of the protocols and what should be done, I agree with you. 
However, I have a feeling we'd always be using the '-d' anyways. I mean, 
when someone cries out that they accidentally deleted a message, they 
usually don't mean that we "partially" restore it for them....

Though, I guess either way makes no difference to me. Just having this 
functionality will be greatly appreciated! :-)
