Add the option to remove local additions caused by excluded folders and files


Is the possibility of adding a checkbox to make it so that when files are ignored on a local device but already downloaded, we delete them when they get ignored in the works or is it something that you feel is contrary to syncthing purpose ?

The use case I think of is when we ignore a folder, we change the name of its content on a non-ignoring device and if you stop ignoring it on the first device, we get duplicates or conflicts. And it’s a good thing but if we could have the option for the user to automatically delete files on disk that are no longer synced, it could be very useful.
