    Your idea should work on deletion, when the inode were
    about to be destroyed, but ...

    ... of course, there still is the problem of hard links.

    If you unlink a file, it might still be around under
    another name.


    $ ln bigfile newbigfile
    $ rm bigfile

    Under your scheme, maybe bigfile would be moved to the
    undeletion area ... fine.

    The problem would start if the ownership was changed
    to root, because then 'newbigfile' would also be owned
    by root and you could no longer access your file ;)


    Will hack the VM for food.
