As long as the Ant process that locks the files is running, nothing ill
be able to delete them - not a forked process and not anything else we
can come up with.

There really isn't any solution to this other than "don't make Ant lock
your files until you are ready with your preparations".  When I
suggested forking Ant would be an option, I was thinking about doing the
part that locks the files rather than the one that tries to delete them.
