I was following the lead of, which has used `rm -f` for
such things ever since it was first introduced[^1], although it appears
that, since v2.15.0, all the `rm`s in that script have been moved to the
C code[^2].

Actually applying thought, rather than just following existing
precedent, I suspect having `-f` is useful because it means the command
will work even if the shell has picked up that `rm` should otherwise
have a `-i` argument from somewhere.
