 It would definitely be worthwhile to improve the handling of recursive
deletes on windows. Just a couple of notes:

1) The code doesn't actually use shutil.rmtree on windows now.
2) I don't think it is reasonable to ask users to specially craft paths to
use this (I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that though).
