SubjectRe: Drawbacks of implementing undelete entirely in user space
<BIG snip!>

Um, excuse me, but wouldn't it be a whole lot easier to have
adduser/useradd put an alias to a 'mv $* ~/.wastebasket' in users with GID
100 or $GID -gt 500 -o -eq 500 's .profile s, and leave the
administration, etc alone? Of course, a .wastebasket dir would have to be
created. A cron job could clear those directories every night or every
hour, depending on space constraints. I suppose I cast my vote for user
space. This just doesn't seem to be a system-level function, and it's
definitely something that varies in importance from system to system.
Oh, for those with free processor and tight disk, there's always gzip...
