Hey Edscott,

I must admit I haven't been using xffm at all, so my comments may be
way off the mark. But here it is.

I have difficulty using the way xffm handles trash. The distinction
between local wastebaskets and global trash collecting utility is
difficult to grasp. Also it takes a very long time to collect trash from

Wouldn't it be possible to always collect trash when adding a file to
the wastebasket and hide the local wastebaskets? I have no idea how
difficult this would be.

Second question is about the panel plugin. Is there an easy way to check
the trash? I could use that for the panel plugin. If not I probably will
remove it, since it now uses the xftree location to check for trash.
