Typescript Watch - Cleaning Target Files on Source Deletion

See original GitHub issue

Can we add a compiler option to also glob-delete a target file when the source file is removed? We run into this constantly and have to gulp clean frequently - it makes the usage of tsc -watch pointless as we have to constantly purge the output directory.

This is constantly biting us during development. A file is removed - but nightwatch / some other library still picks it up and runs tests based on code that should not be there.

Last activity on this was more than 8 months ago, but I hope there is still a possibility for this to be added?

This functionality would also be helpful on a simple --clean, this is effecting us in CI and when switching between branches locally
