Ah. :-)

Mind you, it doesn't seem to work right at all on my system.   Seems to
be making a MacOSX-style .Trash dir* and then sometimes decides to add
hundreds of duplicate entries until a "Variable binding depth exceeds
max-specpdl-size" hits.   So, probably a bug or two, then.

* which, btw, I don't think is a common convention with MacOSX in this
case? GNOME Nautilus / KDE Konqueror / XFCE Thunar all seem to use the
fd.o specced trash scheme (.trashinfo undelete data etc.)
