This is really a usage issue. I don't think a different message will
make much difference here. If the user doesn't read one message why
could we expect him to do read another message?

If you select files by pressing "insert" the current file will never be
the selected one. The user should know this.

If you have only 1 file selected the message clearly states the name of
the file mc is about to delete. How could the message be clearer? And if
you are deleting more than one file the message also makes that clear,
so it should be obvious you are not deleting the current (single) file
under the "cursor".
