Ah, yes. If you work in a shell buffer much of the time, that's understandable.

And I didn't mean to imply that someone who doesn't use Dired much is somehow
not using Emacs correctly. I would be surprised though if most Emacs users don't
use Dired much.

I mainly meant that I was surprised that Lennart was unaware of the default
deletion behavior. Nothing important intended by my "BTW".
