dired-confirmation: preference variable

Default value: 127

Bits in this variable control when dired's subcommands issue an additional prompt for confirmation. The 1 bit makes dired prompt before deleting a read-only file. The 2 bit makes dired warn before a copy operation overwrites a local file, and the 4 bit does the same for renaming operations. The 8 bit makes dired prompt before deleting a directory hierarchy.
