On win32 rmdirRecurse will fail if a file in the directory has the read-only
attribute set. The win32 API says such a file needs to have its read-only
attribute removed, however Phobos lacks a 'setFileAttributes' function.

I propose we add an optional 'force' enum or boolean to rmdirRecurse, which
will force removal of read-only files by removing the read-only attribute.

This probably means other related functions like 'remove' will need to have
this optional parameter.

Additionally we should provide a setAttributes function
