just to put everybody in the loop here: chx and i have been  
discussing the idea of a deletion API for drupal core, which would  
address killes' modular concerns as regards this functionality, as  
well as allow us to break out all the confirm code into a seperate  
module.  what this means is that site admins would have the following  
options for a deletion workflow:

1. the current scheme: no trashbin, with confirm screens
2. trashbin with confirm screens
3. trashbin with no confirm screens
4. no trashbin, no confirm screens (for those who like to live  

simply enable or disable either of the confirm.module or  
trashbin.module to get the desired combination.

in addition, the API would provide non-core modules with greater  
access to the core's deletion cycle (which is currently fairly closed)

i've already begun work on this, and my goal is to have this up for  
testing within one week, if all goes well.

in the meantime, i would still love to get reviews of the original  
trashbin patch, as most of that code will be used in this new API
