The problem with removing 'Delete' as a key binding is that we will get lots of complaints and then RequestForEnhancements in Bugzilla. Although I don't use it myself, most people expect the delete key to work. It does in every other GUI mail application I've tried.

So perhaps the default (initial) binding for `Delete' should be to a dialog that offers to bind it to either `move to trash' or `toggle deleted'[1]? (I believe that's feasible, right?)

That sounds okay.  Although someone might change their mind later.
Maybe instead of lots of preferences in the crowded preferences dialog, we could have a "reset mailbox to default settings" command?

[1] with another option for `do not show this dialog again' to remove the annoyance, for anyone who wants neither!

It might be cleaner to have the dialog present three options:
  * move to trash
  * toggle deleted
  * do nothing
