Hash#fetch is not mutative. This proposal is for a whiny version of #delete.

```ruby
hsh = { a: 'a' }; hsh.delete!(:a); hsh # => {}
hsh = { a: 'a' }; hsh.delete!(:b); hsh # => KeyError (key not found: :b)
```

Feature #14546: Hash#delete!

Hash#delete currently returns nil if a given key is not found in the hash. It would be nice to have a way to check that the key was present in the hash. This can be accomplished with with a block, but it would be nice to have some sugar for this.

~~~ ruby
{ a: 'a' }.delete(:b)                                                  # => nil
{ a: 'a' }.delete(:b) { |key| raise KeyError, "key not found #{key}" } # => KeyError (key not found: b)
~~~

I'd like to propose a Hash#delete! method:

~~~ruby
{ a: 'a' }.delete!(:a) # => 'a'
{ a: 'a' }.delete!(:b) # => KeyError (key not found: :b)
~~~
