simple solution:

alias rm="rm -i"

more advanced solution (sketch, chokes on options, 
but you get the idea):

function rm { 
	for arg in $@
		mv $arg .todel.$arg

function unrm {
	for arg in $@
		mv .todel.$arg $arg

untested, not recommended, but who really needs something like
this, can easily implement it.
