I  thought  about  it,  but  it  breaks  the  option  parsing  a  bit  since
remove_members kind of expects a list name.
Not  that it  can't be  fixed, mind  you, but  having a  list name  required
depending on whether a flag was there or not seemed a bit ackward.

That said, it's trivial to change, and as long as the functionality makes it
into  the main  distribution, how  the arguments  are parsed  doesn't really
matter to me,
Barry or however considers merging this  in is welcome to change the parsing
logic and I don't think they need a patch from me to do this :-)
