    People are used to a mrproper that does NOT delete their editor
    backup files and patch rejects. Thats the only arguments against

    The main purpose should be to have a clear and logical
    distingush between the two/three.
    As it is today people are confused, and there is no consistency -
    especially between architectures.

    I'm fine with a change that moves MRPROPER_{DIRS,FILES} to clean - except
    But I'm not fine with the current situation where I have to say goodbye
    to all my .rej files + xx~ files just to force a full recompile.

    I will do a new patch tomorrow.
