I'd like some more feedback on this then I guess...
I personally think the Xtree method (2) is a little silly, as if you
are _trying_ to type PRUNE and make a mistake, then it most likely
is just a typo.
I tend to think your suggested option 3 may be a little overkill -
I don't think most people will want to type Alt-P, PRUNE _and_ the
directory name...seems awfully tedious.
Comments seeked! ;-)
