This behavior is already the default within the GNOME desktop, why do we
need to ensure this insanity works the same way in cli.. I can just
imagine the horror.

If you delete stuff, it should go away - I'm even in favor of having a
bit of code to ensure that the files vanish for good and beyond all hope
of recovery. If you delete the wrong stuff in cli, you have it coming.
