This sounds like a really bad idea (aliasing it to rm). Once you get used
to having it, you become more careless with the rm command; suddenly
you're using another box where rm is for real and you've lost real work.

Undelete is nice but not standard. I do admit to having used it to
recover some work not long ago :-) (The NetApp file servers the university
I study at uses keeps snapshots of directories by hour, day etc.)
