SubjectRe: 2.2.0 wishlist

: This should be a user-level option, IMHO.  Personally, I don't believe in
: undelete :) and would never expect (or want) a kernel revision to implement
: support for it. Instead, implement 'erase' and 'undelete' commands at the
: user level (or replace rm and add unrm?); that way, people that want it
: can simply install a user-level package, and people that don't can ignore it.

It isn't that simple. You have to be able to undelete files that were
unlinked by system daemons.

The kernel should support this, if the feature is deamed desirable.
However, most of the support should live in userland (the kernel
shouldn't harvest deleted files, a cron job should, etc).

Doesn't ext2fs have support for this already?
