Re: [IO] Robust file remover, other Windows-specific enhancements

After looking through the open issues and PRs for IO, I don't see anything
similar, though there is https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-295 which
may be related to junctions as well. This may also be a nice opportunity to
introduce a PathUtils class similar to FileUtils since IO already uses Java
