libtrash ?

Wouldn't this extend out of the realm of "Desktop Environment" though? I think this is more of a distro based issue and not one for KDE. I don't think it would be a good idea for KDE to implement something that would have system wide ramifications.

Although it would be nice if the 'trash' could all use a central location ie. for KDE, Gnome & libtrash to all use the same repository for such 'trashed files'.

Just my 2 cents on the issue.

this has been suggested several times now. and after loosing 15 minutes
of work last night i'm leaning towards agreeing with its usefulness atm :)

was there any conclusion on the old discussions?, it would be very nice for
a cvs co of kde to give me this. its one of the things that many windows
users (me included) really expect.

i'd prefer for this (or rather versioning) to be in my favourite fs 
personally. but thats not gonna happen for a while so i'll stop dreaming.
