Well, nobody is breaking this compatibility completely. If we mount a
volume with DOS fs, we just do trashing to the "home trash", not to the
volume itself.

Otherwise we'd have to make an entire "special case" just for DOS fs. With
different directory names, too.

In 0.6 I will make this more clear.
