[wp-hackers] Data recovery (post_status?)

I think this thread had already come to a conclusion, which was that the 
'trash can' concept is well understood by users, and a useful/positive 
concept to bring into WP.  We can easily do post_status=='trash' + post_meta 
(timestamp and previous status).  My guess is without adding any further 
work we can put a comment in the 'trash' with comment_approved=='trash'. 
(Obv, both post_status and comment_approved need to be varchars, again as 
was already discussed...).

I'd obviously make the 'trash can' or 'recycle bin' panel only available to 
highest-level admins (so that while an abusive lower-level user might have 
normal 'delete' privs, the 'empty_trash' priv is reserved... ;) ).
