In some of our internal applications, we've gone with a "deleted date" 
field to indicate when a particular record was marked as deleted by a 
user. So you get built in tracking of actions, and the system can 
easily filter out items with a deleted date (> 0 or "not null" 
depending how prefer your tables) while being able to hang onto the 
data in case it is needed later on.
