Clean up after DataLad (possible temporary files etc.)

Clean all known temporary locations of a dataset:
% datalad clean
Report on all existing temporary locations of a dataset:
% datalad clean --dry-run
Clean all known temporary locations of a dataset and all its subdatasets:
% datalad clean -r

% datalad clean --what annex-transfer -r --dry-run
-h, --help, --help-np

if set, recurse into potential subdatasets.
