Since it time for admitting, I must admit I haven't been using the trash
collection, just the local wastebaskets. 

Collecting trash simultaneously when adding to wastebasket would be very
easy, also hiding the local wastebaskets. Both of these would have to be
configurable, so I must make options.c work for xffm (that's the
toughest part)

The collected trash, yes it is easy. You can linkup to the libxffm
library and use the int count_trash() function, or just put the code in
your src. Its quite simple:

#include <dbh.h>
static DBH *trashbin;
static int trashcount;

static void
count_check (DBHashTable * dbh)
  char *p;
  struct stat st;
  char *fullpath = (char *) DBH_DATA (dbh);
  p = strrchr (fullpath, '/');

  /*printf("DBG:%s -> %s\n",fullpath,p); */
  if (!p || strlen (p) <= 1)
  if (lstat (fullpath, &st) < 0)

count_trash (void)
  char trash_path[256];

  snprintf (trash_path, 255, "%s/.xfce4/xffm", getenv ("HOME"));
  if (!check_dir (trash_path))
    return -1;
  snprintf (trash_path, 255, "%s/.xfce4/xffm/trashbin.dbh", getenv

  trashcount = 0;		/* for count step */
  if ((trashbin = DBH_open (trash_path)) == NULL)
    return -1;

  DBH_foreach_sweep (trashbin, count_check);

  return (trashcount);
