I just read the documentation for ordinary directory mode, and I learned
that you can override the standard behavior by using a prefix argument.
For example, mark a file, move to a different file, and type `1 D';
emacs will offer to delete the current file instead of the marked one.
Maybe vc-dir is similar. I haven't tested it.
