Even though I am not sure how often I would use it myself, "reflect
only the removals in the working tree to the index, but exclude any
other kind of changes" might turn out to be a useful addition to the
toolchest in certain cases.
I however am not yet convinced that "git rm -u" is a good way to
express the feature at the UI. "git add -u" is "update the index
with modification and removal but ignore new files because we won't
know if they are garbage or assets". What the same "-u" option
means in the context of "git rm" is not very clear, at least to me.
