Re: PATCH: [Bug 75143] delete trash dialog title should say "empty trash contents?"

I think it does since what you are saying is "Empty the contents of the
trash?" which alternatively can be expressed as "Empty trash contents?." Might
want to ask calum though, maybe there is even a better statement we can use. I
think "delete trash contents" is bad though since it sort of destroys the
metaphor of a trash can. Actually now that i think of it maybe it should just
be "Empty Trash?"
