Seems like the sharp knives are half the problem.  It seems like linux
filesystems should just incorporate some kind of optional undelete
feture - just mark files as deleted and then only overwrite them when
space is needed, or after some kind of delay.

When btrfs comes along I guess we can all have our shapshots every 15
minutes, and that will help.  Delete a file, just do a cp
/autosnaps/2012/05/24/10/45/path/to/file . .
