Implements a "trash can" under GNU/Linux
'libtrash' is a shared library which, when preloaded, intercepts calls to glibc's unlink() and rather than permanently deleting those files, moves them to a "trash can". Your mistakes (at least those of the "rm -rf dir /" class :-)) will no longer cause the loss of work or of your system's binaries.
