[Pharo-dev] AbstractFileReference>>ensureDelete when directory has children

I often was surprise to get primitive failures while calling
#ensureDelete. I saw that when a folder has children, we should not call
#ensureDelete but #ensureDeleteAll, at least on Windows.

I think we should raise an other error than "Primitive Failure" when we
are in that case. Something like "DirectoryHasChildren" that would
signal "This directory contains files and cannot be deleted.".

What do you think?
