But with call-interactively, it can't specify the file to delete.

Maybe a better way is to have 2 functions.  A low-level one (what used
to be `delete-file') that is not meant for interactive use and that is
a file operation, and a higher-level one for interactive use which is
not a file operation and which uses the Trash if applicable.
