Why depend on an external tool instead of coding the removal routine in Python? And when using an external tool, why depend on gnu rm instead of Windows' built-in RMDIR /S ?
Well because it was easier to just use Gnu tool rather than trying to write my own recursive Python folder deletetion. I was just trying to get something going asap.
I just like the Gnu rm`s options and I use other Gnu Core Utils here as well, so it was just a personal taste.
I will just make one version with RMDIR instead later today.
