Yeah, if anything this could be a plugin, I don't think "delete later"
really has much use in the core.  The delete operation is async
anyway, so you won't gain any speed, and depending on MogileFS to
delete your file later doesn't feel right to me, FWIW.

But if you put together a plugin, I don't see why this couldn't be
distributed with the base distribution.  (I'm a big fan of plugins, as
you can tell...)
