The old code was wrong for negating things - the public API is
documented as always requiring a non-negative value (the combination of
delta and shrink implies a reduction, no negative needed).  So this is
actually a bug fix.

My latest version now requires both --delta and --shrink to be present
before ignoring a negative sign.
