That is exactly what I do (delete after certain errors and for archiving).

No, I don't want to delete them every time. I don't want to see them. 
Except for the .bst file, I never ever really need to see or touch 
these files (the only reason wanting to see them is when you want to 
delete them for reasons listed above, what I have to do occasionally on 
Windows helping my colleagues with compilation errors, but for that we 
already have command).
