Nice!  Why do you fallback to ~/.local/share/ in
move-file-to-trash-freedesktop.  With the predicate you already checked
that XDG_DATA_HOME is set.  If it's not set in
move-file-to-trash-freedesktop I'd expect an error.

Does that have a chance to be included for 23.1?  I know, it's
feature-freeze, but even if it wouldn't do TRT in each and every case,
it cannot be worse than the current behavior, right?
