Well you can use the restore functionality of the trashcan, if you use "Move To Trash" :)
Otherwise Create New / Link to location / "trash:/" would do it, but I agree if you tell me it's not intuitive :)

OK the plan is: I'll clean up the RMB menu for this .desktop file (with hacks in konq_popupmenu...)
and either remove "Move To Trash" and "Delete", or even add a "Remove Trash From Desktop"
with a confirmation dialog box telling people about the fact that they'll need to type trash:/
if they want to get to the trashcan after removing that link - does this sound OK?
