Well, a shell is a superset of a file manager.  Eshell mode is a
corner-case.  It would be the only shell where files move to

Anyway, my point is to make moving to trash defaulting to true in modes
where users handle files intentionally, that is, they know they handle
files, as opposed to modes like Gnus, where it is only a coincidence
that mails on a certain backend are plain files (Maildir, nnml) but
other's are not (mbox, IMAP).

But it should definitively be true for modes like dired, image-dired,
and EMMS (which is not included in emacs).
