I don't think the trigger to check the trash should be login, but maybe
a cron job that runs every day and deletes files according to some rule
configured by the user.

I think the maybe "deleting to trash" should be a concept for the whole
system.  All delete operations (command line and GUI) should do the same
thing.  Could "rm" be modified so that instead of getting rid of files
they are moved to the trash?
