Because sometimes one does not WANT to expire everything....just the 
vaults in ONE bank.

I too have used the command

  cd {BANK}; for X in * ; do dirvish-expire --vault $X ; done

QUITE frequently.

Now, if your argument is that one should be using expire rules, then 
consider the situation where one is adjusting said expire rules and 
needs to kick off an 'out-of-band' expire on JUST the vaults in the bank 
where the expire rules have been changed.

It would be nice to be able to specify a particular bank to expire.
