Keep Xtree PRUNE

In Response To: Re: Yeah, it should (Kim Henkel)

Hi, I'm new to this forum but I've used XtreeGold for DOS for many years so
here's my tuppennys worth:

Ztree while being a clone of Xtree, should attempt to emulate as closely as
possible the original software. In the case of PRUNE, it should by default
require the word PRUNE and if only uppercase is allowed then there is no need
for having configurable options such as entering the pathname as well or a
user-defined shortcut (e.g. OK).

I've used PRUNE for many years and I can't recall ever deleting a tree by
accident.
