to the question of how to do it, here's what came off in my mind right 
whatever's being deleted, be it a comment or a post(or page), it can be
tagged with a timestamp when it was deleted. now WP can check to see at
some regular interval if there is any stuff that's beyond the allowed 
time &
can purge those items. and the other items whose lifespan in the 
isn't over yet, they can be displayed on a page in the admin section, 
with two buttons(Recover & Delete) which allows each item to be
recovered or deleted individually. also a mass delete or recover option 
be very well recieved!! :)

any thoughts, bouquets or brickbats? :)
