[racket-dev] okay to add planet error check?

I have a "make unlink" target in my Planet-development Makefile that
removes all the development links I commonly use.  I use it to start
fresh, when some or all of the links are installed.  I would rather
keep the ability to use it regardless of the current set of installed
links, than have it fail partway through.

On the other hand, I don't need this behavior to be the default.  If
you want to make raco signal an error by default, and add a --quiet or
--force option to restore the current behavior, that would be fine by
