bug#16331: 24.3.50; `dired-internal-do-deletions': "Deleting..." message

Subject: bug#16331: 24.3.50; `dired-internal-do-deletions': "Deleting..." message

The message "Trashing..." (which is unclear, BTW) or "Deleting..."
appears while the user is being asked whether to delete/trash.

So the message is wrong: Emacs is not (yet) deleting files.

A better message would be something like "Preparing to delete..."

A message such as "Deleting..." can give the impression that the files
are already being deleted.  If you have 50 marked files, you don't want
to see a message saying that they are being deleted before you have had
a chance to cancel deletion.
