    Instead of tying this to a filesystem full condition, the user's disk

    This would allow a user with 100 MB of quota to live dangerously with
    all 100 MB devoted to live data and an always empty trashcan, or 1 MB
    or live data and 99 MB of backup in their trashcan directory.

    If ext2 supported versioned files, the trashcan could also contain files
    thesis.tex.1 through thesis.tex.<bignum> as a cheesy substitute for
    real revision control.
