Fedora is not only for Desktop sytems (you can install it without GNOME, KDE and even without X), it is still very often used for server systems - and there I do not have a Trash. I think the GNOME or KDE Trash is on the false level. The trash should be global for all unlink() system calls. The GNOME Trash could show the libtrash folder and work with that direcotry.

In this case we're talking about the cli... Be it bash, sh, zsh, ksh, 
csh or whatever your favorite shell interpreter is! Having trash in 
Gnome and KDE is fine by me - I don't use it, personally, but it's fine 
by me. Moving it to the cli is insanity IMHO - Even Windows don't do 
that dag nammit :o)
