I thought of that one myself, but for safety I want the user to
explicitly tell whether the required action is on a directory or
file. Mistakes are easily made, and this way a few of them can
be caught in an early stage... (Due to some sort of mistake, I
ended up with an erased source tree, because it deleted a whole
directory instead of a file).

I can live with "src" and "dest", but I prefer the more safer way.
