Trash needs to equate to "destroy". so closing a window or removing an applet 
both make sense.

throwing something in the trash to unmount it was one of the original MacOS UI 
mistakes. it doesn't make any semantic sense.

yes, i've been working on the conceptual pieces necessary for this for a 
couple of months.

btw, are you a developer, artist, documentor ... someone who is joining the 
project? if you generally are here to offer random ideas for someone else to 
work on, it's probably better to use bugs.kde.org for that because the 
mailing list is a great place to lose ideas that nobody works on.
