- could you point out a use case where you want this behaviour?
- if you can point out a use case, and do not want to change that
option, then please add an --ignore-fail-on-non-empty option.
- you cannot differentiate between "group does not exist" and
"group not empty" in the return code. If I have to find out
this information with getent myself, why does this option
exist at all?
