The -d and -f flags already suffer from the same problem of showing up
is repo-remove --help, when they don't apply there. Maybe I should put
conditionals in usage() to tailor it to the right invocation. Really,
this usage message is a bit off anyway, as it looks nothing like that
of pacman, pacman-key, or makepkg. Thoughts?
