My initial intention for flags toggle is for git newbies, who are not clear
about how to use -x/-d/-X/-ff options. I feel it may have values for these
people. But since most people feel it may bring trouble, I can withdraw
patch 9/12, 10/12, and 11/12.
Another improvement I want to hear your opinions. When the user execute
"git clean --interactive --dry-run", the current implement is ignore the
"--interactive" option, and do dry-run only. How about we combine them
together? First show the user the interactive interface, and when user
choose to clean, do cleaning in dry-run mode.
