Can you elaborate on what trash() would do?

Okay, so I read the documentation at http://search.cpan.org/dist/File-Remove/. My gut feeling is: No, we should not implement this. Given all the *other* grief we're getting about the File::Path removal functionality, I don't see the gain in re-implementing something that, if someone really wants it, can be found on CPAN. (Though someone should attend to File::Remove's bug queue, as ADAMK is less active these days and the last CPAN version of this module dates from 2011.) Thank you very much. Jim Keenan

Yes, to me it's superfluous and doesn't belong in File::Path at all. The only possible rationale for it is if we ever wanted to add "transactional" functionality, which again I think is too much sugar. In such case this RFE is rejected.
