Hmm... I think it is not bad to be allowed to delete/remove files/directories 
when they are on the shelf. As far as I remember, NEXTSTEP removed nonexisting 
files from the shelf - at least when updating the browser (if GWorkspace does 
that more often than the original, I don't seea major problem there).
