Uhm. Might be independently useful, but do bear in mind that
delete-by-moving-to-trash is already in-trunk (in customize group
auto-save).  Lennart might want it on by default, but that's a separate
issue.   At minimum, if emacs is going to support trashcans, it should
support the windows recycle bin on windows, the macosx-style trashcan on
macosx, and the freedesktop.org style trashcan used by GNOME/KDE/XFCE
and others, so that people who  do turn on delete-by-moving-to-trash get
their files moved somewhere platform-appropriate and unsurprising.
