OK, how about some preventative stuff. If there is not real way to
'undelete' files. How about adding a script named 'rm' that passes the same

deleting them.

Anyone have something like this hanging around their system somewhere?

Maybe, if you are using FAT (highly unlikely) or ext2 (also highly
unlikely) and you pulled the plug as soon as you noticed what you did.

Sadly, the standard answer, though, is, "No, you're SOL."

You could always create an alias and make rm interactive by inserting the -i option, hence rm would now become rm -i which would at least make you think twice before actually deleting it?
