that's a good one.  there's also libtrash, which i used for awhile.  for
some reason stopped using it.  don't remember why.

intercepts calls to unlink(). basically does the same thing as the

Package: libtrash
Priority: optional
Section: libs
Installed-Size: 152
Maintainer: Timshel Knoll <timshel@debian.org>
Architecture: i386
Version: 2.0-1
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.1-1)
Filename: pool/main/libt/libtrash/libtrash_2.0-1_i386.deb
Size: 45586
MD5sum: 5353699d8a2ca3f9af70808b9f27f869
Description: A trash can library to use with LD_PRELOAD
 libtrash is a shared library which, when preloaded,
 implements a trash can under GNU/Linux. This way, your
 mistakes (at least those of the "rm -rf dir /" class :-))
 will no longer cause the loss of a week's work or your
 system's binaries.

good luck richard.
