Description of problem:

When using rhevm-shell to manage an environment, it appears that you can export a VM, but you can not export if it already exists in the target domain.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open rhevm-shell session
2. Type command to export vm (# action vm <vm_name> export ...)
3. Receive the following message:

status: 400
reason: Bad Request
detail: Cannot export VM. VM with the same identifier already exists.

Actual results:
rhevm-shell replies with the above message

Expected results:
rhevm-shell would either have an overwrite flag, or a prompt asking if you want to continue

Additional info:
The help page for the 'export' sub command lists only the following as flags you can specify:
    [--async: boolean]
    [--exclusive: boolean]
    [--discard_snapshots: boolean]
    [--storage_domain-id|name: string]
    [--grace_period-expiry: long]
    [--correlation_id: anystring]

specify '--exclusive true' to ForceOverride
