Are you trying to remove the -P switch?  Then there's no way of
having a "logical default" via aliases / shell scripts / you name
it and still tell mtree to do a physical walk.  This very topic
is discussed in the symlink(7) manpage.  The author sees a chance
for users wanting to "override" behaviour multiple times by
specifying multiple toggles.

I feel it's OK when you change the default to "walk the fs in its
physical meaning", but I wouldn't want you to provide only a one
way switch.  Please leave -P in there or rename it to -H (which
should be available) plus make it the reverse of -L if it's not
yet at the moment.

In case I'm absolutely missing the topic please ignore this
message. :)
