hmm, thought with the date "attached" we could spare us the separate meta info
file tree if a file is moved to a trash subdirectory that corresponds to its
original location. Then all info is available, and actually stored completely
in the specialy treated filesystem's meta-data.
This suggestion would be only for the trash directory format on the filesystem
thoug. A desktop frontend (URI) to it could of course show all filenames in
one view and show the deletion date and original location separate from the
filename, as properties maybe in the second and third column of the list for
A trash format that makes sense on the filesystem level could be used and
coherently improved on the desktop level, too. Whereas it may be less likely
the other way around.
