Search your favorite linux sites for linux disk editor and you'll come up 
with the available offerings.  By now more than one exist on 
freshmeat.net.  I suppose all are aware of the $home./trash directory that 
can be made and the alias of rm to something that moves the file to be 
deleted to the $home/.trash directory for later disposition.  The rm 
command can be renamed to rrm and is properly used only in one place and 
one instance in your garbage script that actually interactively empties 
$home/.trash.  Someone may already have packaged all of this perhaps under 
linux recycle bin but I don't know for sure not having checked yet.
