I've now committed a revised patch as part of revision 113288 and am
closing this bug.

This is more modular than my previous patch, and it also handles the
interaction with external file deletion in some other cases, but I
haven't had time to check all cases.  Still, I've committed it now since
it's better than the status quo.  (The revision also includes a new file
deletion command and also fixes several related bugs and does some code,
doc string and comment clean up.)
