It depends on the system. In Windows, the Recycling Bin is a special
thing. That is, I can find it in DOS, meaning a Squeak move file call
probably wouldn't work either. However, using the FFI, you could probably
easily use some Windoze system call.
In Mac OS X, the trash is in ~/.Trash/ though, so nothing special needed
