Yep, looks OK to me.
What I found missing in the spec was the security considerations, i.e. the required
permissions on the trash directories. $topdir/.Trash-$uid and the "home trash directory"
both need to
- be owned by user
- be a directory
- not be a symlink
- have exactly 0700 permissions (rwx------)
The spec talks about the specs for $topdir/.Trash, but not for .Trash-$uid/ or .Trash/$uid/ itself.
(BTW even just after creating a trash dir, better check for this, since on e.g. USB keys
mounted with uid==root, the "owned by user" security check will fail)
