As suggested by Martin in msg170717, shutil should grow some way to block until a given file/directory is actually deleted, due to Windows' scheme of not actually deleting a file until all handles to it are closed.

This could take the form of a 'wait=False' parameter to rmtree that causes rmtree to block until the file/dir is gone (which could mean blocking indefinitely), or a new function "wait_until_deleted(name, timeout=None)".
