So perhaps this could be automated with a single option:

       Automatically delete items from the Trash:
       [ Never            :^]

The menu could contain "Never", "After 1 year", "After 3 months", "After
1 month", "After 1 week", "After 1 day", "When I log out", and
"Immediately". The last option would satisfy Nikolaus's use case.

This option could replace the "Include a Delete command that bypasses
Trash" option, so the number of preferences would stay the same.

Yeah. This seems like a good idea. Perhaps we should also somehow notice
when disks are near full and the trash is large and auto-clean it?

The ".thumbnails space wasted problem" was already discussed, but just for the record, I think this trash logic/code should be shared with the .thumbnails problem.

So, the thumbnails that has not been accessed for the time list Matthew pointed out are deleted silently by nautilus, also when the disk is near to get full the thumbnails should be deleted, in that case a little message in the notification area telling what nautilus have just do it is not superflous imo.
