`delete-file' should make the decision based on whether it is
called-interactively-p.  `dired-remove-file' can use
`call-interactively' to pass that information to it.  Dired is a
special case, since it acts as a "UI agent" for the user.

But the calls to `delete-file' it makes are *not*

I won't say this works for sure, but I think there's a pretty good
chance that it does.  (Ie, Dired is unusual in needing to use
`call-interactively' to DTRT.)
