I believe that crypto and the problem of securely deleting files form a
filesystem media are completely different problems.
So no, I would not wish to have this come with GnuPG itself.
You could phrase a wish to the www.gpg4win.org packaging effort
to see if they would take up a different application for file deletion.
Note that another interesting approach is to use crypto file systems and just
delete the keys when you are done. Is much easier than to wipe a disc.
