Isn't a general design rule "Never say 'Are you sure?' if you can say
Undo?" So what about a notification which says something like
"$N Files have been moved to the Trash. Undo?"
I am thinking of a notification bar like the one that comes up if you
open a photo containing device in nautilus and it suggests to open
f-spot. Btw that's pretty much how GMail does it and I think it's easy
for the absolute beginners, and not annoying for the power users.
