I was joking... there's of course no spec for remote trashing, and
taking into account the variaty of file and operating systems in the
network world, this wouldn't make sense at all. Just like trashing to
the home trash (as Nautilus does -> "Move To Trash") doesn't make sense
when browsing remote file systems (of course the situation is different
when you're using an NFS mounted homedir, etc).
