Hmm, for me, the force option always means that we do things that we
don't do by default and just give warning of.

For your change, without '--force', if an user tries to use a mounted
device, the tool gives warning of it and ignores the device.

With '--force', the tool uses any device even if it's mounted.

For me, it's pretty consistent. Anyone?
