I'm looking through 'nautilus-2.24.1/src' and see 'nautilus-trash-bar.c'
'nautilus-trash-bar.h' but I can not find where Nautilus actually unlinks data from the hard drive.

I'm looking to implement a secure-delete method, similar to 'srm' or 'wipe' and would like to ingrain inside Nautilus.

GIO/gVFS probably handles this, correct?
