That's right. ... 3 weeks ago my win HD died. Luckily I did back up the 
data partition some days earlier. Now I have a physical system and 2 
mirrored data drives. plus the existing backup solution :)

That's exactly the point. 

As a developer I don't want to do harm. So if I would release a plugin that 
can have destructive side effects, I need / want to take care, that the 
user knows, what is going on. So it needs to be configurable: Similar to 
the "bundler plugin 
Bundler even doesn't delete stuff, but imports can overwrite existing 
tiddlers ...

Sure. ... If there wouldn't be murphy's law: "Anything that can go wrong 
will go wrong!"

At the moment we don't have a "tm-ask-and-delete-message" needed for your 
"(2) Are you REALLY sure you want to do this?" ... At least I think there 
isn't. ... So may be we need one. ... But for my personal usage the 
security questions would need to be switched off. ... because I hate popups 

have fun!
