Well, since you unceremoniously snipped off the rest of my message, perhaps
you did not read it:
I said that I personally would never want nor would activate a feature that
modified the behavior of rm like this. I also said that I though it would be
a good idea to provide a *user space* solution to this; a command that people
can use *instead of* rm for when they want reversible file deletion (and I
think it should otherwise behave as closely to rm as possible).
It seems illogical to me, Captain, to have the system behave differently just
because you are using a different interface, especially for so basic a
function as deletion.
Our desktop environments have a trashcan feature that most "Joe User" 's use.
This bites them when they run rm because they don't understand the
Yes, I know this is a user education issue. But that's no solution.
What is wrong with an *optional*, *additional*, *separate* command that
behaves (as) exactly like rm (as possible) except for being reversible?
