Actually once TRIM support becomes common recovering deleted files on
SSD will be impossible since the flash blocks will be erased rather than
just being left unallocated.

I think the man page should changed to state that the file *MAY* be
recoverable using forensics.  That should be sufficiently clear that it
is not a secure erase, but recovery is not at all easy if it is possible
at all.
