I do not have objections to removing --mixed, but I do not find
--force/--prune any less confusing than --soft/--hard.  Its just
a terminology so once people get used to it anything would do.
But I agree that we need to come up with a good name for them.
I do not think --force/--prune is it, though.

"git reset --hard HEAD~5" should work.  Sorry, the colon ":"
turns out to be confusing to refspec notation <src>:<dst> used
in fetch/push and was replaced with a tilde "~" some time ago.
