That's what checking the code bears out to me as well, but I think
Allan's point is that -s and -v actually do apply to repo-remove.

While reading through this code, I noticed what looks like a bug -
when using repo-remove to remove the very last package ("zip up some
emptyness"), the repo won't be signed even if -s was given. Want me to
fix that once I'm done with the usage message?
