Mangeons-en vs allez-vous en
The lesson shows us "mangeons-en" and I know that "allez-vous en" is a valid sentence. Both are imperative. Why the difference in construction? Why is it not "mangeons-nous en" or "allez-en"? It is just that "allez-vous en" is an idiom or there some underlying graammatical rule?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate avoir in le Conditionnel Présent (conditional mood)"

The difference is that "allez-vous en" comes from a reflexive verb: s'en aller = to go away
