Another thing that we should consider is compatibility with existing
systems. Gnome currently uses $HOME/.Trash, which conflicts with this
spec. Its easy for later versions of Gnome to check for the "info"
directory, and if it doesn't exist migrate the files there into the new
format. However, what about people using older versions of Gnome at the
same time as the new KDE or Gnome. It will show the info and files
directory in trash:// and let you delete them.
I'm not sure there is a good way to handle this though, other than
having another name for the directory.
