If I were you , I would write a simple wrapper for rm.
Here is what I would do.
if rm or rm -r is encountered, create a local dir somewhere call it
'Mytrash' then mv the files over there.. instead of from the machine...
Then run a cron perhaps every month to actually remove it .

PS: Im assuming that your talking about accidentally removed files... If
not then I sorry .
