--- Comment #2 from Sean Champ <lab+bsd@thinkum.space> ---
Just adding an observation: With gvfsd-trash unavailable, some file managers
might assume gvfsd is not available - seen with x11-fm/nemo at version 5.4.3
with patch https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=267244

At least, nemo presents the message: "It looks like gvfs is not available,"
under the Advanced tab in the nemo preferences dialog. Ideally, the gvfs
plugins that are installed would still be available and usable by nemo,
regardless of what's activated the message in the prefs dialog.

Checking the process list, a number of gvfs volume monitor plugins are running,
even with gvfsd-trash not installed.

In my own opinion, this would not negatively affect the operations of a normal
FreeBSD desktop. Perhaps it may affect the availability of filesystems via gvfs
plugins, in some file managers. From the perspective of FreeBSD official ports,
then after my initial patch and with this known side-effect, I'd understand if
gvfsd-trash would be installed by default. afaict gvfs is still functional,
even without that particular component installed
