[IO] Robust file remover, other Windows-specific enhancements
I've been refactoring some IO code in Jenkins lately that are similar to
the FileUtils delete family of methods. I had originally wanted to replace
them with calls to FileUtils, but I noticed that we had a more
sophisticated strategy for retrying deletes and other workarounds for
(usually) Windows-specific problems (e.g., you can't delete an open file in
Windows; this can be commonly caused by things like virus scanners which
cause ephemeral errors).
My Jenkins code is here , and I was wondering if I could work on
contributing some of this logic back to commons-io in some way. There may
also be some useful utilities to include regarding Windows-specific
symbolic link/directory junction manipulation, too.
