a large number of users seems to be disappointed [1] by Evolution's

development efforts for an alternative trash handling playing nicely
with "broken" IMAP server implementations (discussed under [2],
referenced by [1b]), which could be activated via a simple button?
I'm just asking because I've read a user request in a GNOME 2.28 release
news [3] on a popular German website and the myriad of comments under
[1] suggests that many users would appreciate the possibility of a
different trash handling.
If you read to the bottom of that URL you'll see that Milan is working
on this, but so far it's not on the roadmap for a stable version.
The whole IMAP deletion issue is an example of the difference between
'de facto' and 'de jure' standards. IMAP defines deletion in a very
specific way -- the 'de jure' standard -- and Evo implements the
definition. Most other MUA's follow the "real Trash folder" model, i.e.
they don't fully implement IMAP but use a 'de facto' standard. The 'de
jure' way is elegant and efficient,

Agree.  As a mail system administrator I vote +1 for keeping the current
method [the right way] as the default.
