More consistent with the .trashinfo name (and the info/ name).

"may" is there twice :)

license? Did you mean location?

I don't know what to answer about Samba; samba sharing is common (with windows 
in particular, but not only I guess), but is it really common to use smbmount for that?
How does the permissions work with smbmount? Everything appears as writable by
the user mounting the dir? I don't see a solution then, unless this case can be
detected and then we would use a .Trash without $uid?
