[PVE-User] Request: change "Delete" to "Detach" for hard disks

In the hardware device list for a VM, you can "delete" a hard disk: this 
will detach the disk image from the VM, but it leaves the image on 
storage. This is perfectly good, but I think "Delete" is misleading: I 
*knew* that it just detaches the image, but I hesitated for a second or 
two, with my head spinning on the question "are you really sure it 
doesn't delete?"

(I moved the image to shared storage and was in the process of detaching 
the old image and attaching the new one, but I wanted to keep the old 
image as a backup until the VM booted positively).

Could you change the menu label to "Detach"?
