FWIW, on the Mac, the few apps I'm aware of that delete (not just overwrite)
files under explicit user control move them to trash.  The trash is considered
trash for the whole machine from the user's point of view, not just a mechanism
for the file manager app.

(And if you want to try out what this hypothetical Gnome VCS situation might be
like, you can use a Mac running Time Machine.  Not exactly the same thing, but
close in a lot of ways..)
