That is 100% fine, but I think that the point is that most other people are
used to 'clean' and 'distclean' doing what Per described and it could be
confusing for people if 'make clean' does what 'make distclean' is generally
supposed to do. So either we can teach everyone to adapt to your clean & zap,
or we can just comply with the loose standard of clean & distclean. I think
it's kind of obvious which tactic will cause more pain in the future.
