Thanks, Walter, for that a good remark on the *source*-R.SH-attributes issue!
However, I don't think we'll need two spearate functions/keys for that, a single F2-option to force delete/overwrite of all source *and* target R.SH-equipped files will be absolutely sufficient, IMHO.

P.S.Let me note, of course we currently can use CTRL-'T'ag and CTRL-'A'ttributes in conjunction with the 'B'ranch view in order to avoid that R.SH-protected copy/move/delete-task limitations, also! The latter procedure and an (improved) single F2-force... function should then really fit all needs, I think.
