Moving to trash should be a more general action available always not only when there is an 'orphan' file but...

Technically, writing the code to move to trash is simple but as user I expect this feature has the same Finder's behavior.

When you move a file to trash from Finder, you can restore it to its original location (go to trash folder and right click on the file) but no public API is available to do that, there are APIs to move to trash but these calls don't allow restore.

I'm sure if I implement this feature some user asks to me why the behavior differs from Finder.

BTW I will verify if on Mavericks this bug has been fixed by Apple

Please do not restrict this feature to Mavericks only over not being able to have the trash remember where the file came from in earlier systems. Should be able to move to trash in any OS version whether or not original location can be remembered.

And/Or you might provide a delete option that completely deletes after an "Are you sure" chicken box.

Just curious of the status of this?

No progress, this request is in the dust.

I discovered why items moved to trash can't be restored, if app is sandboxed (and this is mandatory for applications hosted on MAS) the restore isn't supported.

This behavior drives me crazy so I've dropped this request
