    Description

      Shell command "rm" is really "mv" to trash with the expectation that the server will at some point really delete the contents of trash. With the advent of permissions, a user can "mv" folders that the user cannot "rm". The present trash feature as implemented would allow the user to suborn the server into deleting a folder in violation of the permissions model.

      A related issue is that if anybody can mv a folder to the trash anybody else can mv that same folder from the trash. This may be contrary to the expectations of the user.

      What is a better model for trash?
