That's why I like the idea of using COM. All the infrastructure is already
there. For now we can implement the trash shell object inside shell32 and
if someone wants to write a OS/X version all they need to do is override a
registry key. Other shell integration objects can even be implemented
out-of-proc in the explorer process all this can be cleanly hidden from the
shell32 code that uses it.
