Because that way xfdesktop and Thunar are polling the trash, which is
unnecessary overhead if you're already using the org.xfce.Trash
interface (well currently xfdesktop will still poll the trash even if
not using it directly, but that will be fixed when I finish the next
bunch of patches for the trash implementation).

IMHO xfdesktop should behave exactly the same way as the trash panel
applet, which means letting Thunar do all the trash related stuff and
displaying only the icon with the appropriate state.
