OK... how much is that?

And Gruber knows this... how? From his extensive experience as a system administrator?

Enough Already:
a bit of a stretch to call `rm` a "system administrator tool." It's just how one deletes files & directories on Unix. If it is used as a "system administrator tool" that means you don't actually have a complete sysadmin toolkit.

To Gruber's credit, this is probably true almost everywhere. This should shame the industry.
