bug#28373: [PATCH] New variable controls whether dired confirms to kill

Subject: bug#28373: [PATCH] New variable controls whether dired confirms to kill buffers visiting deleted files

User-agent: mu4e 0.9.18; emacs 25.2.1

Thanks for the review. I think I've addressed the things you've brought up; 
specific replies below.

While I have your attention, how do I start the process of FSF copyright 
assignment? I'd rather start it now so I don't have to deal with it later. And 
do I have to do one form for Emacs and another for org-mode, or will one form 
take care of both?

Thanks!

Thanks, modified

I assumed I did since the other dired-clean variable is there. I guess I don't, 
though.

Modified, thanks.

That slipped past me, sorry!

I changed it to this. I could've sworn this is what I wrote originally and it 
didn't work, but it seems to work fine now.
