But what do we display to the user here?

"Failed to delete but we will try again after Ant has finished -
please check whether the file is still there after that, if so, the
build has failed."

Unless you set quiet to true, failing to delete a file is supposed to
break the build.  I don't see how we can predict that the failure is
non-critical, whether deleteOnExit will work or not.
