This works for me on GNU/Linux, it may work with `rm' from CygWin (or
perhaps MSYS (MINGW)?), to delete `PATH/DIRNAME':

  C-x d PATH RET
  C-s DIRNAME RET      ; or move the pointer on the directory by other ways
  ! rm -rf RET         ; pay attention, especially when you have marked files

or

  M-! rm -rf PATH/DIRNAME RET

No silly trash and possibility to wipe out things too (for example,
replacing `rm' with `wipe' in the command lines above, if you have the
`wipe' program).
